Pork Kebabs (Espetada) Recipes

Ingredients :

500g lean pork, cut into 1cm cubes

salt, to taste

6 dried red chili peppers

1 tbsp black peppercorns

6 whole cloves

5cm (2 in) piece of cinnamon stick

2 tsp coriander seeds

3 tbsp white vinegar

1 tbsp chopped garlic

2 tsp ground turmeric

1 tbsp chopped ginger

2 tbsp coriander (cilantro) leaves

a little water

bamboo skewers, soaked in water to prevent scorching

Method :

Place the pork into a bowl. Rub with salt and set aside. Dry roast the chili peppers, black peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon and coriander seeds in a heavy saucepan until fragrant. Grind to a powder in a spice or coffee grinder. Transfer to a blender or food processor. Add the vinegar, garlic, ground turmeric, ginger and coriander leaves. Blend to a paste using a little water. Mix with the pork and leave to marinate for about 2 hours. Thread the meat onto bamboo skewers and cook under a medium hot grill (broiler). Turn the skewers frequently until the meat is cooked on all sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. (Alternatively, the pork can be char grilled on a barbecue or pan fried in a little vegetable oil). Serve immediately with a spicy chutney.

A very popular dish from Goa on the western coast of Indian. Goa not only has some of the best beaches in the world, but also a unique cuisine, formed by the fusion of the indigenous and Portuguese cultures.
