Pork Korma with Sweet Potato

I enjoy reading food blogs and trying new recipes. I’m constantly surprised at how easy it is in fact to make something. I would have been too intimidated to make it in the past but food blogs demystifies things for me. Food blogs, I’m eternally grateful.

G. and I were having a discussion last Saturday about how our hobbies. As different as they are from the outside (he’s a tech guy and loves putting bits together, getting them to work) essentially, it’s the same. Cooking requires getting ingredients together, placed in careful measurements to create pleasing flavours. I enjoy cooking and baking because it’s like an edible science project. I’ve always been curious as a kid when two, three, four things come together; what do you get? What sort elements create an outcome? What’s cooking to you?


Anyway, back to the korma, this is so easy that it just amazes me. I got the recipe from Ooh, Look…. Thank you OohLookBel for sharing. I’ve kept the key ingredients i.e. onion, garlic, garam masala, cumin but substituted other things with what I had in the fridge. I reckon this korma would taste really good as a vegetarian meal too.
