Things I'm cooking in my kitchen

Pork Curry

A family friend was telling me about some stinky pig meat in their freezer, left over from an old wild boar they'd shot up the hill a few weeks back. It made me drool for my granny's pork curry. For this classic Sri Lankan recipe, you will need to acquire or make some Sri Lankan dark roasted curry powder. Here's a good guide: https://www.theflavorbender.com/sri-lankan-roasted-curry-powder/
