INGREDIENTS USED TO MAKE PORK MASALA CURRY
For the chicken I have used meat with fats. When it comes to pork I love the fats more than the meaty part. I have used boneless meat but you can use with bone in, and thats what I like.
Honestly speaking I love any meat with bone-in compared to boneless. Meat with bone-in lends deeper, richer flavor to a simple curry making it super delicious.
This simple, easy and effortless recipe uses simple and basic spice powders which every Indian kitchen have in store like turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilly powder, pepper powder, garam masala powder and meat masala powder. Few spices like cumin seeds, dry red chilly and bay leaf are used to temper. The other ingredients used for making the curry are mustard oil, freshly grounded ginger garlic, chopped onion, tomato, chunks of potato and salt as seasoning.
This pork masala curry is a versatile recipe. You can easily make a variations by adding your own twist.
Instead of pork you can use other meat like chicken, turkey, duck, beef, buff, mutton or lamp.
You can add whole spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cloves etc.
You can make a dry version instead of curry. You just need to add less water and allow the gravy to evaporate once the meat is tender.
