Fried Pork With Evaporated Milk

Fried Pork With Evaporated Milk


Recipe source : Adapted from  House of Annie

At first I was sceptical about using milk to cook a savoury dish. Then I let my imagination run  and tried to visualise the combination of pork, chilli padi and milk. I took a gamble and I have no regrets! 

The pork pieces had been marinated and shallow-fried before cooking in milk. The curry leaves make it very fragrant. Add more chilli padi if you like it real hot! 

Tastes great!

 

Ingredients


500g pork, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tbsp tapioca flour
1 tsp salt
dash of pepper
enough oil to shallow-fry the pork


For Sauce


5 shallots, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
5 bird's eye chillies, sliced
half a bowl of curry leaves
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
pinch of chicken stock granules (optional)


Top : curry leaves
Bottom left : chopped garlic. Middle : chopped shallots. Right :  bird's eye chillies

Pork pieces

Evaporated milk

Method


1.  Mix the pork pieces with salt, pepper and tapioca flour and allow to marinate for about 1 hour.
2.  Heat enough oil in a wok to shallow-fry the marinated pork pieces until golden brown. About 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
3.  Remove the oil used for frying the pork pieces leaving only about 3 tbsp of the oil in the wok.
4.  Saute the chopped garlic, shallots and curry leaves until fragrant. Make sure the shallots and garlic are not burnt.
5.  Add in the fried pork pieces and continue to stir-fry for 4 to 5 minutes.
6.  Pour in water and evaporated milk. Cook until slightly thicken, about 2 to 3 minutes.
7.  Add salt, sugar and chicken stock granules.
