Delectable Pork in a Mustard Spice Mix

3 to 4 servings
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • A 1 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and very finely minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and very finely minced
  • 1 pound boneless pork meat from the shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons rai masala (see note 3)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 fresh long hot chili (or 1/2 jalapeno), sliced thinly
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Lots of fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Heat the oil in a wide pot or large skillet over medium high heat. When hot, add ginger and garlic. Stir. When the garlic starts to brown, add the meat. Stir once or twice and turn the heat to medium low. Now add the rai masala, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, chili, and salt. Stir to mix. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Cover tightly, turn heat to low, and simmer gently for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the pork is almost done. Remove cover. Cook, uncovered, over high heat until all the liquid is gone and the meat has browned a bit, stirring as you do so. Add lots of freshly ground pepper and the lemon juice. Stir to mix.
