Pork with bamboo shoot

Megovino Kehie shares her recipe for Pork with Bamboo Shoot.

"This dish is mostly prepared by the Angami Naga, a major tribe of Nagaland," she says.

"The cuisine has been passed down from great ancestors. It is prepared on occasions like weddings, Christmas, harvest festival, etc." 



Tip: This dish is usually served dry, but you can add a cup of water with the remaining ingredients, if you want a gravy.
