Pork with bamboo shoots


               Very healthy recipe with no oil and masalas.

1. Pork 
2. Bamboo shoots - 1/2 cup
3. Green chili - 3(If you have traditional raja mirchi at home then go ahead use it)
4. Dry red chili flakes
5. Cherry Tomatoes - 3
6. Ginger
7. Garlic
8. Onions
9. Spring onions(optional)
10. Water - 1ltr
10. Salt


                 If you could get your hands on some pork meat with fat then its perfect. First clean the pork and keep it in a bowl. Add some salt to it and leave it aside. Next cut the Onions into thin slices. Crush the ginger and garlic. Slit the green chilies . Actually, if this dish is made in a deep vessel/stock pan and cooked slowly then it will taste amazing. But since I don't have the same so I'm using cooker to cook. Take the cooker, add the pork meat, crushed ginger/garlic, green chillies, dry chilli flakes and Onions. Also goes in the the spring onions, bamboo shoot, salt and the cherry tomatoes.  Then give a good mix so that all the ingredients coats on the meat. Finally add good amount of water  for the pork to cook nice and tender.
                     If you are using a stock pan  then also same procedure  but cook it on medium flame for some 45-50 mnts. There is no need to give more stirs in between, just once or twice will be enough and leave it untouched to cook.  As I'm using cooker, so I cook it 7-8 whistles. Either ways make sure pork is cooked well. We don't have to add any extra oil, because the pork already have enough fat contents in it. Once the dish is ready serve it with hot rice. I hope you all will try this dish.
