Goan Pork Roast

Pork Roast


2 Kg Boneless Pork

2 medium size onion chopped

4-5 Kashmiri chilies broken in half

2 lime (juice)

¾ tsp turmeric powder

3 tsp ginger and garlic paste

1 Maggie cube (dissolved in 4 tbsp. warm water)

3 tablespoon oil

Salt to taste

For Roast Pork Masala:

Grind the below ingredients

4 Cardamoms

16gms cinnamon sticks

12gms Black peppercorns

9gms Cumin

7gms Cloves


1. Clean the meat and cut it into medium sizes. With a fork or a knife tip pierce the meat in a few places, this will allow the marinade to seep in.


2. Now marinate the Pork by applying salt, lime juice, ginger and garlic paste, turmeric, Maggie cube and roast pork masala. Let the pork marinate for about 2 to 3 hours.


3. Take a kadai / pan, add 3 tablespoon oil and sauté the onion and chilies.


4. After a minute add the pork pieces along with all the marinade and stir.


5. Now add 1 cup water (just enough to cook the meat)

6. Close the kadai / pan and cook for 45 minutes on medium heat (after 20 minutes turn the pieces).


7. Check if the meat is cooked. If not cooked; then cover and cook till it’s done.

8. Check salt to taste.

9. Stock/sauce is essential, so please don’t dry the stock completely.

10. Let the meat cool to room temperature.

11. After cooling slicing the pork into thin slices, put it back in the sauce/stock and cook it for further 2/3 minutes.




12. You could even cook a few pieces in a frying pan.

    Dear Alves,
    I’m a big fan of your recipes. I don’t think so I have come across anyone’s recipes as original and pure traditionally Goan as yours. Your ingredients and measurements are precise and perfect. I’m totally crazy about cooking our Goan food the traditional grandmother’s way. I was so amazed to find long lost recipes on your blog which my grandmother,dad and mom have been cooking. I was a fortunate girl to have a family who followed traditional Goan cooking and cooking methods. From stone ground masalas to cooking in earthen pots. We still make our fish curries in earthen pots.
    I just want to say a huge thank you for sharing the recipes and looking forward for more from your blog.
    I’m also tagged in the TGF group, but no offence to anyone I don’t find a single original recipe out there. I am not looking for any modern twist in our traditional Goan recipes, and hence I’m a big big fan of yours cause of the originality of your recipes.i have now even introduced my mom to your blig.God bless you.
    A true blue Goan foodie.
