Gino's Tip

When frying food, try and stick to 1 tsp of fat per person to avoid excessive fat intake. Another tip you can try is to place your fried food onto paper towel afterwards to soak up any excessive fat.

Step 1 - South Indian Curry

Heat a large casserole pan over medium-high heat. Add a dash of olive oil and wilt your baby spinach for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish. Now sweat your diced onion for 4-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Now add your chopped English tomato and DailyDish Spice Mix and cook for 2-3 minutes, while stirring to avoid catching the spices on the base of the pan. Proceed to add your butternut and coconut milk. Stir to incorporate your spice mix and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the butternut is tender. Thin your sauce with some milk if it thickens too much. In the last 8-10 minutes add your lentils. When done, taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking and finish by mixing in your wilted baby spinach. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Step 2 - Black Sesame Pork

Season your pork sirloin steak with salt and pepper and rub with your black sesame seeds. Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a dash of olive oil and fry your pork sirloin steak for 2 minutes on each side for 8 minutes total cooking time. Try to get a good sear initially so that your sesame seeds stick to your meat. Remove the pan from the heat and allow your pork sirloin steak to rest while you're serving.

To Serve

Place your south Indian curry as your base and top with your black sesame pork.
