Curry is my go-to meal at home, and I can’t get enough of it! Growing up in Nepal, my family ate curries regularly, and that tradition has continued to this day. One of the best things about curries is that they’re versatile and can be customized to suit your tastes.

One of my favorite curries in my household is pork curry. This dish goes well with rice and is the ultimate comfort food. While some pork curries use coconut milk to give them a rich and creamy texture, this pork curry recipe is simple and doesn’t require coconut milk.

#1 Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add cumin seeds and fry it for a minute. Then add green chili and saute for a minute.

#2 Add the pork to the pan and fry until it is lightly brown.

Note: Once you’ve added the pork to the dish, be mindful that it will release some water. The water should be dried up before adding the next step.

#3 Add the chopped onions and sauté until the onions are translucent.

#4 Add the curry powder, turmeric, Kashmiri powder, salt, ginger, and garlic to the pan. Stir well to coat the pork with the spices.

#5 Add tomatoes and mix everything well. After that, add 1 1/2 cups of water to the pan. Mix everything well.

#6 Put the lid on. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the curry simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the pork is tender and cooked.

Note: If you want to adjust your curry’s consistency, add more water and let it simmer. I prefer mine on the thicker side, so I use one and a half cups of water for my curry. It’s totally up to you and your taste buds!

#7 Finally, add cilantro and serve the pork curry hot with steamed rice or naan bread.
