Chilli PORK

Continuing with my Indo-Chinese recipe, this one is really very tasty. Pork is different  from chicken.  Its cooking time and cooking style is different and it's taste is also different. Indo-Chinese recipes are easy to cook and it's different from Indian style of cooking.  Less or no powdered spices are used in Indo-Chinese cooking, only some Chinese sauces are used to cook the dish. I love Indo-Chinese recipes and this one is my favourite.  If you like this recipe too and thinking of making it , please give a comment below.

Fish curry with colocasia(Kosu) and mustard plant(Horiyoh xaak)

Mustard plant (Horiyoh Xaak) is a green leafy vegetable grows in winter. Its taste is little bitter when cooked. But it consists many vitamins and minerals. So it's a good vegetable from health point of view.

Colocasia again a tropical plant found in Assam. Colocasia is also known as taro. As all the parts of a colocasia plant ia edible, I am using root part in this recipe. It's very tasty and healthy too and another speciality of Assamese cuisine.
