Railway Pork

Pork is red meat and is not very healthy. Also pork has lots of fat in it so pork should be eaten with restrain. Railway pork is an authentic Indian recipe which contains pork with lots of vegetables. It is very tasty and easy to cook. Ingredients are cheap and easily available and this dish is purely for taste. Though I am not a fan of pork but I put this recipe here for those who like pork. We Indians are not pork eating nation so we do not have many pork dishes. Also India has second highest number of Muslims in the world about 250 million and since Muslims do not eat pork so not many Hindus who eat meat also do not eat pork
