2 sticks cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric powder
¼ cup finely grated fresh ginger
15 garlic cloves
10 dried bird’s-eye chillies
¼ cup tamarind puree
¼ cup white vinegar

Pork
⅓ cup vegetable oil
1.2kg pork shoulder, cut into 5cm pieces
2 large onions, thinly sliced
2 tbsp tomato paste
10 curry leaves
2½ cups chicken stock
2 tbsp mango chutney
Steamed rice, Greek-style yoghurt and pappadums or naan bread, to serve

Mint Chilli Chutney
2 cups mint leaves
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 tbsp tamarind puree
2 medium green chillies, 
seeds removed and 
chopped
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 160˚C. To make paste, place whole spices in a pan over a medium-low heat. Stir gently until aromatic. Cool. Blend or pound to a fine powder. Add remaining ingredients. Blend or pound to a paste.

To make the pork, heat ¼ cup oil in a flame-proof casserole dish over a high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper. Sear in 3 batches until golden. Set aside.

Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining oil and onions to same pan. Cook, stirring for 10 minutes, or until tender. Stir in 
5 tablespoons vindaloo paste, tomato paste and curry leaves.

Return pork to the casserole dish with stock and chutney. Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Cook in pre-heated oven for 2½ to 3 hours, or until very tender and rich.

Meanwhile, to make chutney, process ingredients to a coarse paste. Season to taste. Serve curry with chutney, rice, yoghurt and pappadums or naan bread.

Smart Tip: Left over vindaloo paste can be refrigerated in a clean jar for up to a week. Seal top with a little vegetable oil.
