Coorgi pandi (pork)curry

pork curry and Kadambuttu ( coorgi style rice dumplings)

This is my second coorgi dish .My first dish was chicken curry and this is with pork.coorgi people love pork they call it pandi. They serve this dish in almost every occations along with akki rotti/otti orKadambuttu ( coorgi style rice dumplings) which is prepared using rice semolina/rava goes well with this pandi curry. I tried this combo for the 1st time and believe me it was simply awesome.
    In this recipe i have used Yorkshire pork which is very tender and just melts in your mouth and with this i prepared Kadambuttu ( coorgi style rice dumplings)(steamed rice dumplings) which is very easy it is like our  rice Oondi.Only thing that i did not use in this is coorgi vinegar(kachampuli).Actually i have no idea where it is available so i replaced it with tamarind pulp and little malt vinegar.The dish was superb and we all loved this dish.
