There is no way in a recipe to communicate what’s going on in here; a thick red chili paste marinates, that bursts in orange turmeric color, provides the perfect seen to the tender, almost falling apart, pork meat.

If you like curries with the thickness and complexity of the Massaman Curry, you will enjoy this salty, sweet, and sour dish.
