Goan Pork Night

4.7/5 from 25 Customers
Loading...
Goa, a small coastal state in the west of India, was until relatively recently still ruled by the Portuguese - who were responsible for introducing chillies to India. India is now the largest consumer of chillies, and the Goans have a particular fondness for the spicy fruit. This curry is based on pork curries from the region (of which the infamous vindaloo is one) and often would be made a few days in advance to allow the flavours to develop. We’re serving the curry with delicious tomato rice, some seasonal crispy pakora and a cooling mint and coconut chutney.

I am a little ashamed to say that this box was a 'little out of date'! That said, it was absolutely blinding and testament to great kits. Lockdown cupboard clearence has helped us re-engage with The Spicery and given the lovely weather, we ate this dish outside.

Ah, there's nothing like a spot of al fresco dining! Happy spicing!

5/5

This was a really straightforward dish to make and tasted just like a proper curry house dish! Well worth it.

5/5

Really good dish and not too difficult to make either! Well recommended.

Matt Brannan View More

This looks delicious, Matt - you did a great job! We're so glad you enjoyed it. Happy spicing!

5/5

The flavour of the pork was very authentic. I marinated for several more hours than suggested which tenderised it more. Went very well with the slightly sweet fritters & complemented by the slightly bitter & spicy greens. Definitely one to impress friends with....when we are allowed!!

Kamal Patel View More

This looks amazing, Kamal - while you wait to have friends over, you're certainly impressing us in the meantime!

5/5

Superb, easy to follow instructions. I used about half of the chilli seeds for heat. Very enjoyable family meal, washed down with a Cobra beer.

Peter Clark View More

We're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed this meal, and a nice cold Cobra sounds like the perfect accompaniment!

5/5

SO GOOD! I loved rehydrating the chillies and boy did they have a punch to them. Everything was incredible and went together so well! It amazes me how you come up with such brilliant flavour combos months after month! I’ve got pakoras and left over chutney so I’m very excited for yummy lunch next week

Mell Birkett View More

It looks like you did an amazing job with this, nice work! And we love that gorgeous blue tableware too. Enjoy your leftovers for lunch!

4/5

Delicious meal, I decided to go a bit easier with the chillies only using half of them, this was a good decision as the Goan pork would have been too hot using them all. We all loved the mixture of flavours especially the coconut chutney.

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed this dish - happy spicing!

Delicious, yet again! Did not use all the chillies as it would have been too hot for us! Loved the combination of flavours, especially the coconut chutney which is a favourite now in our household! Can't wait til next month to get the next box.

A Friday night lockdown treat

There's nothing like a good home-cooked curry to spice up a Friday in lockdown! Great job!

Friday curry nights will never be a takeaway again

Who needs takeaways when home-cooking is this good, ey?

Absolutely lovely, a hot one that’s for sure but I love that, the curry was delicious and the pakora recipe was amazing, loved it would definitely cook the both again

These dishes look fantastic in your balti bowls - great job! We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed it all. Happy spicing!

5/5

Great curry which certainly packed a punch but was very flavoursome. We omitted the tomatoes from the rice but it still tasted great. The pakoras were so easy to make and tasty. The coconut chutney was a refreshing accompaniment.

Alice Divall View More

What a feast! This all looks great, Alice - fantastic job!

4/5

A little hotter than normal, but still so tasty! There was almost a fight for the last pakora and the coconut chutney was delicious!

Laura O'donovan View More

Yum - this all looks absolutely delicious, and your tableware is gorgeous too! Brilliant job. The last pakora should definitely go to the chef!

/5

Having tried to pay for the order several times without success , so I thought, I was very pleased to receive it the very next day-one order and only one payment. As always, brilliant spices and easy to follow instructions to make great meals.

This was OK... but after the suggested cooking time it was watery and a little bland. I needed to cook it for an extra hour before it was decent. Also, the chutney lacked tang so I had to add extra vinegar and lemon juice.
