Theme 12: Spicy
Cookbook: Nigella Lawson, Kitchen
Recipe: Indian rubbed pork chops
I never used to like food with a lot of spice or heat until I met hubby. He grew up with Indian grandparents so he was exposed to spices and curries at a young age. I began appreciating the complexities of the different spices as I was exposed to them more and more. I now love all curries and all the spices that go in them.
This recipe originally is for lamp chops but it goes very well with pork. I’ll try lamb next time.
Recipe: (serves 4 )
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tsp sea salt
- 4 pork chops
- oil for frying
- Add the spices to a small shallow dish and mix well to combine.
- Dip the pork chops into the spice mixture and make sure it’s coated well on all sides.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the chosp for about 5-6 minutes a side depending on how thick it is.
- Serve with steamed vegetables or steamed rice
