Goan Pork Ribs

Pork Ribs is something I have eaten a few times at restaurants but never tried making at home. Usually J calls me when he goes to the Pork shop. Every time we wanted to buy ribs, we were out of luck. This time around, we were lucky. When he asked me if it needs to be cut, I confidently said no. It’s only when I saw the rack in front me that I realised my folly.

Contrary to its name, Raspberry Matar does not have anything to with Raspberries. So why the name?? I wish I had an answer. 🙁 My wild guess is that the chef who invented this dish thought of a fancy name to woo his customers… 🙂 The raspberries in this recipe are nothing but fried paneer balls.
