  1. 1 kg of pork belly, cut into bite-sized pieces
  2. 4 onions, chopped
  3. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1 inch ginger, minced
  5. 2 green chilies, sliced
  6. 1 tsp of turmeric powder
  7. 1 tsp of red chili powder
  8. 1 tsp of coriander powder
  9. Salt to taste
  10. 2 tbsp of oil
  11. 1 cup of water
  12. 1 cup of grated coconut
  13. 2 cups of coconut milk
  14. 2 tbsp of oil
  15. A handful of curry leaves
  16. 2 tsp of mustard seeds


In a blender or food processor, grind the grated coconut, ginger, and green chilies to form a smooth paste.

In a large pan, heat the oil and add the chopped onions, garlic, and the ground paste. Cook until the onions are translucent.

Add the pork pieces to the pan and cook for a few minutes.

Add the turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, and salt to the pan and mix well.

Pour in the coconut milk and water and bring the sauce to a boil.

Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for 45-60 minutes, or until the pork is fully cooked and tender.

In a separate pan, heat 2 tbsp of oil and add the mustard seeds. When the seeds start to crackle, add the curry leaves and pour the mixture over the pork curry.

Serve hot with steamed rice.
