Ground Pork Curry

Adapted from Chow Times

I am always nervous about curries. I don't have much of a background in Indian food, and I often question if I am doing things correctly. This was perfect for a beginner like myself, and Ben liked it so much that he ate the whole pot. It was spicy and so easy to make. I would be interested in trying it with chicken, and varying the heat levels, but it was great as is.

1 lb lean ground pork
2 onions, finely chopped
4 medium potatoes, cubed
3 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin seeds, roughly crushed
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp dried chili flakes
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 1/4 cup vegetable stock
1 large bunch spinach
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions, garlic, pork, and spices together in a pot. Cook until onions are soft and meat is browned. Then add potatoes and tomatoes, once warm add stock and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once 20 minutes have passed, add spinach and allow to heat through for a couple of minutes, just enough to wilt it.

Serve immediately with rice.
