  • 1 foodhaus Iberico pork secreto
  • 200g Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • ½ cup foodhaus onion cubes
  • 1 cup foodhaus sliced carrots
  • 3 tbsp Ardo ginger
  • 3 tsp Ardo diced garlic
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Vegetable or groundnut oil for frying


1.  Fry onion and carrot over a medium heat until beginning to colour (approximately 8-10 minutes).

2.  Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for a minute longer.

3. Add the curry powder and turmeric and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or so.

4.  Add the 2 tablespoons plain flour, then slowly pour in the chicken stock stirring with each addition (you can add it more quickly as it is incorporated).

5.  Add the honey, bring to the boil then reduce to a low simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring regularly.

6.  Season well with salt and add the garam masala.

7.  Transfer to a blender and blend to a smooth sauce (always be careful not to fill the blender more than halfway when blending hot liquids). Cover the sauce and set aside.

8.  Heat oil for deep frying to 180°C.

9.  Cover 1 plate with the remaining plain flour and season highly with salt and pepper. Cover another plate or shallow bowl with the egg and a third with the panko crumbs.

10. Dip the pork first into the flour, then into the egg and then into the crumbs, making sure it is well coated.

11.  Deep fry the meat for 7-8 minutes each side, or until deep golden brown. Serve sliced, with rice and the curry sauce.
