Butter Pork Chops

Yum

If you have been following my blog, you would have realised that I broke one of my cooking rules. No deep frying. I’ve adapted from many different deep fried recipes and came up with healthier alternative versions of recipes that does not require deep frying. However, I felt that there’s no alternative for this one. That’s just be trying to rationalise my action. Actual fact was that I was seriously craving true comfort food.

See, I wasn’t feeling 100% a couple of weeks ago, and it didn’t help when the husband left me for his work trip. So the best way to comfort myself was through my belly. Writing this, I guess I could have shallow fry the pork pieces or simple sear it rather than deep frying. But what’s done cannot be undone and I definitely did not regret my decision, because it is darn freaking delicious! The dish has all the making of true comfort food. Buttery, creamy, spicy, and oh so yummy! Best of all it’s pretty easy too!

      I’ve not used fresh milk before. If you want you can substitute evaporated milk with heavy/cooking cream.

      Hi Grace! Thanks for highlighting. I’ve edited it to add it in. The cornflour is used in the marination of the pork chops.

    I’ve been wanting to try this recipe, but just can’t find curry leaves. Are there anything else I can use to substitute? Thanks

      Hmmm, there’s really no substitute for curry leaves, So just omit, or you can add a little curry powder to the sauce. Major super markets and wet markets will carry curry leaves in SG.
