Assam Curry Pork -亚叁咖哩猪肉片

It  is really awesome. I strongly recommend this dish if you like spicy, sour food you can't give it a miss.  It is tangy, spicy and fragrance, this makes you drooling for more and more rice to eat along. So if you gain weight please do not put into my account. lol. It is so easy to prepare give it a try.

Recipe: QUICK & EASY  HAWKER FARE by Chef Alan Kok

300g sliced pork
100 ml water
100 ml thick coconut milk (I used Kara brand)
1 tbsp assam paste- mix with 100 ml water and squeeze out juice , discard seeds
2 tablespoon cooking oil

Curry  Spices:
4 tbsp chopped shallots
2 stalks lemongrass- bruised
2 tablespoon curry leaves (about 4 twigs)
1 tablespoon curry powder
3 tablespoon chilli paste
3 pieces dried assam slice (assam keping)

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon  sugar
1 tablespoon light soy sauce


1) Heat up 2 tbsp oil and saute curry spices until fragrant.

2)  Add in pork and stir well. Add in coconut milk, assam juice, seasoning and bring to boil.  Cook until meat is tender.  Dish and serve hot.


Food Review:  I find this dish is abit too sour. In my next cooking, I will only put 1 piece of dried assam slice.
