About Pumpkin & Pork Fry Recipe

The combination of pumpkin and pork is a really good marriage of flavors, and when you add fermented bamboo shoot to it..it's Christmas every time you have it. Serve this with, dal, hot rice, and some dried fish chutney.

Ingredients to make Pumpkin & Pork Fry

  • 200 gms Port Fat

How to make Pumpkin & Pork Fry

  1. In a deep frying pan, on high heat, render the pork fat till you get the required amount of oil from it for cooking this dish. Take out the now lightly browned fat with a slotted spoon, and keep it aside.
  2. In this oil, toss in the diced onions, the red chilies, and fry for a minute or two. Then, add the diced pumpkin, pork fat, fermented bamboo shoot, and red chilies.
  3. Give it a good stir and cook it covered on high heat, stirring once in a while till the pumpkin begins to soften. Reduce heat to simmer, add the smashed garlic, and cook till the pork fat is cooked through and tender.

My Tip:

Choose tender and sweet, green skinned pumpkins. And, you know your pork fat is cooked when a fork cut right through.
