Ingredients :

4 tbsp vegetable oil

1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds

5 curry leaves

1 large onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, crushed

2.5cm (1 inch) piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped

2 tbsp Sri Lankan spice mixture

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp malt vinegar

625g (1.25 lb) pork tenderloin, cut into 5cm (2 inch) pieces

2.5cm (1 inch) piece of cinnamon stick

4 cardamom pods, bruised

1 tsp palm sugar or soft brown sugar

150ml (1/4 pint) water

300ml (1/3 pint) coconut milk

Method :

Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a heavy-based pan, add the fenugreek and curry leaves. Fry gently for 2 minutes.

Place the onion, garlic and ginger in a blender or food processor and blend to a paste. Add to the pan and fry, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

Add the spice mixture, chili powder, salt, vinegar and pork. Mix well and then increase the heat and cook, stirring frequently for 8 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, cardamom, sugar and the measured water, cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the coconut milk and increase the heat. Cook uncovered for a further 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Using a slotted spoon, remove the pieces of pork from the sauce. Heat the remaining oil in a heavy-based frying pan and add the pork. Fry the pork, turning it frequently for 8 minutes or until it is browned all over.

Drain off the oil and return to pork to the sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes or until you have a dark sauce.

Serves 4-6
