Curry is…a lot of things. 🙂
It’s an Indian spice used in lots of dishes, with or without meat.
It’s also (if you ask me) a mix of condiments, deliciously combined to create the perfect gravy dish for any meat or veggie out there: chicken (curry), pork (curry), fish (curry), beef (curry), veggie (curry), you name it.
It’s a leaf, green, that comes from an Indian tree and that is very often used in South Indian dishes.

The below dish could be the perfect last meal from 2015! So why not try it for New Year’s menu! 😉

How I did it

Step 1

Start
Chop the spring onions, chop the parsnip. Add olive oil in the wok and drop the onions and parsnip inside the wok. 1 minute later, add the thyme as well and keep mixing. IMG_2657

Step 2

The pork
Chop the pork meat in small pieces. I added them in a bowl and seasoned properly with salt, pepper, red sweet paprika, oregano. Mixed all and added into the wok to get the thyme&spring onions flavour.

Leave it to stir until the corn is cooked. Last but not least, add some lime juice to cut the richeness of the gravy a bit.
In the meatime, let it rest for a while and cook the Jasmine rice for 15 minutes, it goes so well with the pork curry. And, it's done! Dig in! thai pork curry cook to smile
