  • 3 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 2 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 1 tbsp peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 1 kg pork, with bone and fat on

How to make Pandi Curry / Coorg Pork Curry

  1. To make the pork masala, dry roast the first 5 listed spices until they crackle. Make sure to keep stirring it constantly to avoid it from burning. Set aside and let it cool. Once cooled, dry grind in a spice blender to make a fine powder.
  2. Cut the pork into medium sized pieces. Wash thoroughly and marinate it with turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt for about 30 minutes. Overnight is better.
  3. Coarsely grind the onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies together.
  4. In a large thick bottom pan, add a little oil and heat it. Add cumin seeds and curry leaves and let it splutter.
  5. Then add the marinated pork and the ground onion paste. Combine everything well together and cook on a medium heat until the pork is tender, for approximately 20 minutes. (Note you may also pressure cook to shorten the cooking time, depending on the meat quality.)
  6. Next, add the prepared pork masala powder and cook it for 5-10 minutes covered. Then pour in water to make the gravy.
  7. Check for doneness of the pork and then add kachampuli and cook again for a few more minutes.
  8. Garnish with coriander leaves.
  9. Serve hot with sprinkling a little lemon juice. This dish tastes best with Rice roti (Akki roti).
