In Sri Lanka we can find fresh pork anywhere. My friends really enjoy my black pork curry dish, and I have frequent requests to make it.


500g pork (diced)
1 tbs roasted curry powder
1 tbs crushed chilli
3 tbs grated coconut (pan roasted and ground)
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tbs cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 onions (sliced)
3 garlic cloves (chopped)
3 sprigs curry leaves
3 green chillies (sliced)
3 tbs chopped ginger
1 peace chopped lemongrass
5 chopped cardamom
3 tbs olive oil
2 tbs lemon or lime juice
2 cup water
Salt to taste


Marinate the pork with the dry herbs and coconut. Heat the oil then sauce the onion, ginger, garlic, curry leaves, lemongrass, chilli, mustard, and cardamom. Add the pork, mix together well, pour in the water and stir. Cover the pan and cook until the gravy thickens and has absorbed into the meat. Remove from the heat, add the lemon or lime juice and check the seasoning. Serve with rice or bread.

  1. I have goraka. I don’t know how to use it. Can it be used in meat casseroles or curries? If so, how do you use them. They are like dried pods.
