Pork Curry ~ Nepali Style

Pork is one of the favorite meat in our house ( considering we are a clan that thrives on meat !) and this is one of my favorite recipe which has been passed down from my Grand Ma. It is simple as ABC and does not need any oil as the meat is cooked in its own fat ! Great recipe for first timers 🙂 ~ Kamakshi
