Naga Dish|Pork in Blood Stew

Today we are sharing a dish with an ingredient that is enjoyed not just by the Nagas, but also by other cultures across the globe- pork blood. It is often made into a savoury stew of meat, pork innards in rich, dark gravy of pig blood. In the Philippines, it is savoured as Dinuguan and in Guam, as Fritada. In Europe , you have the famous black pudding which is a black sausage containing pork, dried pig’s blood, pork fat and spices.

In Nagaland (in Ao lingo), we call it Aai Choo.
