You will need :
Pork cubes - 1 Kg
Chilli Powder - 1 Tbsp
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Big Onions - 2
Garlic Cloves - 10 to 12
Green Chillies - 4
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Powder - 2 Tbsp
Kachampuli - 2 drops ( Refer Notes )
Salt to Taste
Marinate the pork with Chilli powder, turmeric and salt for about an hour.
Blend together onions, green chillies, garlic cloves and half of the cumin seeds to a smooth paste.
In a deep pan, add the marinated pork and cook till excess water dries up. You dont need to add extra oil to pork.
Add the ground masala and cook till done with very little water.
While the pork is cooking, dry roast rest of the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and cumin powder till almost black but not burnt.
Once the pork is cooked, add the roasted cumin powder mixture and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add the Kachampuli and serve hot.
Kachampuli is a black coloured vinegar made from a wild fruit called Kachampuli. Since its not readily available everywhere, best substitute would be regular white vinegar. Kachampuli is very typical of Coorgi cuisine and adds a unique flavour to the pork. A small drop is very powerful so add with caution.
