MainRecipesPork | Colombo Curry

   Colombo Curry submitted by Mom Johnson
This stew is thickened by using uncooked toasted rice. I added dried cranberries for a hint of sweet/tart flavor and some fresh spinach. Serve with hot-cooked rice. From Cooking Light 2005, April edition.

Place rice in a small nonstick skillet; cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until lightly browned; stirring constantly. Add coriander, cumin, mustard seeds, and cloves; cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add tumeric and fenugreek; cook for another 15 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove mixture from pan; let stand for 5 minutes. Place in a spice or coffee grinder; process until finely ground. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onions, shallots, ginger and garlic; saute for 1 1/2 minutes. Add the pork cubes and saute for another 3 minutes. Add sweet potato; cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in the broth; bring to a boil. Stir in the gorund rice mixture; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until sweet potato is tender. Stir in cranberries and spinach till spinach wilts. Stir in lime juice, salt and pepper. Yield - 6 servings.
