2)300 gms of pork (with fat)-cut into small 1/2inch cubes
3)1 medium size onion,chopped
4)1tbsp ginger paste
5)1/2 tsp of turmeric
6)1 tsp of ground black pepper
8)2 bay leaves
9)2 tbsp of vegetable oil
10)fresh cilantro for garnishing.
Method:(Use medium heat throughout)
Heat oil in a flat bottomed vessel. Add the onions,ginger paste,turmeric and black pepper and fry till the oil separates.
Burn the tip of the bay leaves and immediately drop in the pan. Add the pork pieces and fry for sometime till light brown.
Add the washed rice and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add salt.
