Dukramasaso Saladh (Pork Salad)

My mother-in-law (Mamma) who is one of the very good cooks I am related to (besides my darling mom ofcourse) introduced me to some delicious Mangalorean fare during my several trips to Mangalore. One such dish which can be put together in a jiffy as a 'sakne' (accompaniment to alcoholic drinks) is the Pork Salad.
I have not tasted this dish anywhere else and I dont think I ever need to as I am sure that Mamma's version is undoubtedly the best. This recipe is one of the few that I collected during my recent trip to Mangalore - most of which were prepared for the Christmas day feast at home. Pork being one of the most favourite delicacies that appeal to most Mangalorean palates, this crunchy-munchy-sour-spicy baby is quite tantalizing - Try this along with some hard liquor!


Dukramasaso Saladh

Recipe Source: My mum-in-law

You Need:
  • 1 handful of Pork - well cooked in a little turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 inch ginger chopped finely
  • 1 green chilli slit
  • 2 small onions sliced horizontally (across the breadth of the onions)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp oil for frying
Method:

1. Slice the pre-cooked pork into thin pieces (do not shred it too fine or else the fat will turn too chewy - but cut it thinner than the normal cubes that you cut for the regular Pork Bafat dish)
2. Heat the oil & fry the pork lightly
3. Remove from heat & when it has cooled down a bit mix all the chopped ingredients, salt & vinegar well
4. Serve & enjoy this crunchy dish!

  1. Finding the recipe for Mangalorean Pork Salad was like finding a 'long lost friend'! Thank you.
    I am also looking for a prawn recipe that was called 'god-god a' This was just masala prawns with shell. I had them when I was 12 years old and now I am 70 and yearning for the recipe.

    Vera.

  2. @Vera: Thank you so much for that compliment :) I have not heard of god-god a maybe because I don't eat prawns (allergic to them), but my hubby is a big fan and cooks them - i will ask him and maybe he can hunt that recipe for you :)

    Hi Shireen,

    I think Vera is referring to Prawn Gud-gud fry. You will find the recipe in J.B. Lobo's Sambardo (konkani version).

  5. Wow!...I just made it and it was delicious! Thanks very much. I remember eating it at my sister's coffee estate in Chickmagalur dustrict when I was a teenager and remember enjoying it then too. Here is a photo of the dish I made:
