Pork Ribs Curry Recipe

My maternal grandmother makes a fabulous dry chicken curry that doesn’t require coconut milk which in turn makes it healthier too. For my version of ‘dry curry’, I decided to use pork ribs instead of chicken and packed a whole bunch of spices into the paste that really made the dish so flavoursome and moreish. Spiciness level was probably about medium with just 15 dried chillies so if you prefer a less or more spicy flavour, just adjust the amount of chillies accordingly and tweak the portion of seasoning too.
