For grinding
Onion(small or large)-----------------1/2 cup,roughly sliced
Ginger-----------------------------------1 1/2 inch piece
Garlic------------------------------------1 small size pod full
Mint/pudina leaves--------------------8 to 10 leaves

Tomato--------------------------------- 1 medium sized,sliced
Chicken masala powder-------------- 1tsp
Green chilly----------------------------- 2,sliced
Oil-----------------------------------------1 tsp
Coconut slices---------------------------1 1/2 tbsp
Salt as needed


METHOD

  1. In a medium heat pan add 1/4 tsp of oil and slightly roast all the ingredients for grinding (onion,ginger,garlic,turmeric powder,red chilly powder,coriander powder,garam masala powder and mint leaves)till the raw smell goes.
  2. Now grind this to a smooth paste with needed salt and  1/4 cup water.
  3. Next add the ground paste to a pressure cooker and add pork pieces to it. Mix it good.Check the seasoning of the ground paste and cook it. Do not add any water for cooking as there is enough water in the ground masala.
  4. Now in a medium heat flat bottomed pan add a tsp of oil and saute all the pan roasting ingredients(onion,tomato,green chilly) till it becomes soft.
  5. Then add chicken masala powder to it.
  6. Now add the pork cooked water. (Once the pork is fully cooked in a pressure cooker,there will be water in it.The water from the ground masala and the fat of pork.Add this water first to the pan and then add pork pieces.This helps the gravy to get dried up fast)
  7. Cook till the gravy becomes thick. Check the seasoning.
  8. Now add pork pieces to it and keep stirring. Keep the flame in high.This step is a great exercise for hands :) 
  9.  Keep stirring till all moisture in it is evaporated and each piece of pork is dried and separated.
  10. Now in another pan add 1/4 tsp oil and roast the coconut pieces till it becomes slightly crunchy.
  11. Transfer the Pork roasted/varattiyathu to a serving bowl and add roasted coconut pieces on top of it and slightly mix.
  12. Granish with mint leaves and cilantro/coriander leaves.
