Sharing one of the version of Naga pork pickle recipe which is an instant one. Meat pickles are very popular in Nagaland and they are relish by one and all. It is not only popular amongst the Nagas but many people from outside the state love this meat pickles. Here in this recipe I have used Naga Ginger and not our normal ginger along with Naga King Chilly (Ghost Chilly). The use of Naga Ginger gives the pickle an exotic flavour. The Naga Ginger differs from our normal ginger in spiciness and flavours. We don't need much spices and ingredients to make this Pickle. It is made with very few limited ingredients. It is so delicious that you can't stop eating.
