    * 750 grams pork
    * Fermented bamboo shoot (1 medium tablespoon)
    * Red chilli powder (4 tea spoons)
    * Pepper (10-15 flowers); can use grinded pepper as an alternative
    * Ginger (10 grams)
    * Garlic (5 big cloves)
    * Salt
    * Water

To make curry paste
Make a paste of ginger and garlic and keep it aside.
Cut the bamboo shoots into small sizes of 1 cm each. Measure a 1 tablespoon bamboo shoot and keep it aside. Use the bamboo-shoot water minimally.


Cut the pork into medium sized pieces and place it in a cooking pot. Add salt to it and enough water to immerse the pork. In a medium-high flame, cook the meat and salt for 30 minutes or until the pork is half cooked. Add the bamboo-shoot along with its water and stir the mixture until dry. Add some water and cook the meat until it is cooked or the water is almost dry. Add in the ginger and garlic paste, pepper (10-15 flowers) and chilli powder and stir for about 2-3 minutes. (Make sure there is just enough water in the dish so that it does not burn.) Add some more water and let it boil for another 5 minutes. The curry formed should be medium thick. Serve hot with rice.
[ Try it.  If some one kick you from behind,  you will not leave the Thevo Chu table then also.]
