Sorpotel III

1 kg pork
1 lb. pork liver and heart
1/4 bottle vinegar (approx. 300 ml)
a small amount of tamarind and salt to taste
Grind the following in vinegar:
30 dry red chilies
1 teaspoon cumin seed
1 inch piece turmeric
4 cloves
Slice the following:
1 full pod garlic
2 inch piece of ginger
3 onions
4 green chilies

Wash and boil the pork,liver and heart in full piece.

Cool and cut into small cubes, then fry in frying pan (without using any oil) till nice and brown.

Using a little fat from the fried pork, fry the ginger, garlic and onions, until the onions change colour. Add the masala (the mixed spices), fry well then
add the fried pieces of meat. The tamarind paste should be added to the meat
together with a little vinegar (if necessary). Add two teaspoons of salt or more if desired. Cook on a slow fire till meat is tender.

Finally add green chilies.

Cook for another ten minutes and remove from the fire. Sorpotel tastes good on
the next day, and even better after three days or more.
