Pork Varattiyathu is a spicy dish with pork well-seasoned with spices and then dry roasted in coconut oil. It is one of my father’s speciality dish. He is from Angamaly, a municipality in Ernakulam district in the state of Kerala, India where Pork roast/ pork varattiyathu is one of the popular dish.
I had it for the first time when my mother prepared it for me during my post delivery confinement period. I never felt of having this dish before, though my sister who is a fan of Pork roast, always asked me to taste it. But when I tasted it for the first time, I felt like I should have had this before. It is so hot and spicy.
Pork Varattiyathu serves best with rice, appam, puttu, chappati or any other bread. This can be a good starter and also a good combination with drinks ;-).
