How to cook pork with eggplant - a spicy stew with vegetables and rice
Cut the pork flesh without fat (hip part, tenderloin) into long narrow slices, you need to cut the meat across the fibers, this is convenient and correct. Pour olive oil over the sliced meat and pepper.
Peel the chili pepper pod from seeds, chop finely. Press the garlic cloves with a knife, chop.
Add chopped chili and garlic to the meat and leave for a few minutes.
We wash the arborio rice with cold water until the water becomes clear. Put the cereals in a saucepan, pour 150 ml of cold water, add ground turmeric, add 3 clove buds and 3 boxes of cardamom. We put the pan on the stove, bring the rice to a boil, cook, closing the lid tightly, for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, leave for 5 minutes.
Cut the onions into thin half rings. Rub the carrots on a coarse vegetable grater.
Cut the eggplant with a thin elastic skin into large strips.
Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into a non-stick frying pan. Quickly fry the onions, add carrots to the onions, sauté them with the onions for 5 minutes, then add the pork.
Fry the meat with vegetables over a fairly high heat for 5-7 minutes, move it to the side, put the sliced eggplant in the vacant space, fry it, mix with the meat.
Cooking everything together under the lid for 10 minutes.
Next, put the boiled rice in a frying pan. The cardamom and clove buds need to be removed from the pot, the spices have given their aroma and are no longer needed.
Add tomato paste or tomato puree, salt to taste, mix.
We close the pan with a lid, heat the stew for several minutes and everything is ready, you can set the table.
Before serving, decorate the spicy stew with vegetables and rice with fresh herbs, sprinkle with sesame seeds or freshly ground black pepper to taste. Bon Appetit!
