Curry night

Lemon grass
Dried Chili
Can of tomatoes (without the can)
Garlic cloves
Ground Fenugreek
All whizzed up until it formed a nice paste.

Chunky pork chops, cut into... well, chunks.

There might be more in the marinade, I made it yesterday and marinaded the meat over night. I got a pizza to keep the wolves at the door... :-) Those two things combine to wipe my memory.

I removed the meat from the marinade, and took off all the marinade I could. In a sauce pan I fried a few mustard seeds until they popped and then added the meat. Once that had time to fry a little I added the marinade and then a couple of Kaffir lime leaves.

A little mound of rice and some coriander and all's well :-D

You'll have to excuse my ignorance but I really did think that curries had curry in them. That's why I've always avoided them as I don't like curry. This looks delicious!

It was... well, maybe I'd overdone the mustard seeds! :-)

Sounds really good, Mr Naz. The marinating process must have tenderised the pork well.

Might try this one, one fine day. ;)

Mae, try it if you like. I bet your picture will be much better than mine!
