2 tbsp chopped ginger

Grind to a powder in a spice or coffee grinder. Set aside. Heat the sesame oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft. Add the ginger, blachan powder, lemon grass and chili peppers. Sauté for 1 minute. Add the pork and stir fry for 5-10 minutes, until the meat is sealed on all sides. Add the coconut milk and cover the pan with a lid. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, until done. Add the sugar and vinegar, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Serve hot with rice or noodles.

Pork and coconut blend very well - a delicious combination found from Southeast Asia to the Konkan coast of India. The pork should be free of fat to bring out the delicate balance of flavors.
