Sorpotel (diced and fried pork cooked in red masala gravy) Background: (considered to be a Goan classic) Sarapatel is believed to have originated from the Portuguese Sarrabulho (which is some kind of pork stew with curdled pig blood !) and Cabidel (pork giblets). It is often consumed during (catholic) religious festivals or important household functions. Ingredients: 1 kg boneless pork

1 pork liver, 1 heart, 1 tongue, 2 kidneys 3 cups water 12 dried red chillies/peppers 12 peppercorns 12 cloves garlic 1 inch piece ginger 1 tsp cumin seeds 8 cloves 2 one-inch pieces cinnamon ¼ cup vinegar ½ cup oil 1 peg coconut feni Salt to taste 6 green chillies/peppers, chopped 4 medium onions, chopped fine Method: Wash and pat dry the meats.
