Black Pork Curry

Black pork curry is a popular pork dish in Sri Lankan cuisine. Its really simple to make and the taste is really different from a red pork curry. I used the roasted rice and coconut to make this curry thick and more tastier.

This recipe is for 500g pork.


For this  curry I used 1 tsp chilli powder, 1/4 tsp pepper, pinch of turmeric powder , enough salt, 1/2 Tsp curry powder and 1 table spoon full coriander powder.  For roasting 1 tsp white rice and 1 table spoon full desiccated coconut.




Cut or slice one onion, several cloves of garlic , green or red chillies. Prepare several cloves, cardamon, few tamarind or 1/2 tsp tamarind paste 1 inch ginger, 2 inches cinnamon, rampe (Pandan leaves) several curry leaves.



Roast all the curry powders and add on to the pork.




Then add all spiced prepared.




Mix all the spices and herbs well and leave 1/2 an hour to marinate.



Add 2 cups of water and put on the stove on a medium heat.




Meanwhile roast the rice until golden brown.




When the rice is golden brown add the coconut and roast with the rice until golden.




It should look like this. Make sure to stay near and stir always. If not it will go dark and will taste bad.




When the pork is nearly ready add the ground rice and coconut in to it.



Cook until it thickens the sauce. It will not take very long.



After thickening it will look  like this. Serve with rice or string hoppers or even with hoppers.
