Sambari of Pork Served with Apas

Updated: Mar 7

Sambari of Pork is an East Indian style Pork gravy that goes really well with some broon bread or pao and East Indian hand bread which are called Apas. The sambari of pork is basically made with dry mango slices and East Indian Bottle masala . The pork used is boneless , which is marinated in a ground paste and pressure cooked. Then cooked further with some cut masala and East Indian Bottle masala. Instead of dry mango pieces , I have used dry mango powder which is also called amchur powder.


What if you dont have East Indian Bottle Masala , well then the masala that is very close to it is the Malwani masala .

East Indian hand breads are Rice chapatis , made from rice flour.

Ingredients 600 gms boneless pork pieces with less fat To the washed and cleaned pork add turmeric powder, salt and vinegar mix well and after 20 mins wash well and pat dry.

For the masala 2 onions sliced (100gms) 1 green chili chopped 1/2 cup water grind to a paste

1tbsp East Indian bottle masala 1tsp ginger garlic paste


Mix the bottle masala, ginger garlic paste and the ground paste together. Marinate the pork with this mixture.

Cook this pork in a pressure cooker with 1 and 1/2 cup water. Cook on high one whistle, then low for 5 mins.

Ingredients 2 3 green chillies thinly sliced 4 onions sliced 8 cloves of garlic sliced 1 1/2 inch ginger finely chopped 1 tbsp East Indian bottle masala 1/2 tsp amchur powder 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

For the rice bhakris/ rotis / apas

Method Heat up the 1 1/2 cup water with little bit of salt and little bit of oil Once it comes to boil add the rice flour and the flame to low. Keep mixing till u find like bread crumb mixture. Switch gas off. Cover with lid and keep. Once lukewarm , add lukewarm water little by little to make a soft dough. Make into small balls. And roll out into round shapes like chapatis.
