Steps

  1. Cut cleaned pork into cube size pieces. Marinate pork with ingredients listed under marination. Add 2 tbsp of water to this and cook covered till the pork is done. In a regular pan, it might take around 45 minutes. In pressure cooker, it would be done in 1-2 whistles.

  2. ** Drain the excess oil out of the pan. Don't forget to do this. Otherwise the final dish would be very oily. I prefer using this oil to saute the onion and masala.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and fry coconut pieces until it becomes golden brown color. Keep it aside.  ** Another alternative for coconut pieces is grated coconut. If you are using grated coconut, fry 3/4 cup of grated coconut until it gets brown color. Grind it well. The authentic Thrissur style pork preparation is with grated coconut.
