Smoked Pork with Green Peas

Thank heavens the weekend is here finally! Time for all of us to relax, watch a movie, catch up on some reading and maybe some home cooked food. In the mood to cook anyone? Well, not really cooking but some really tasty Naga food . So let’s do an easy one ๐Ÿ™‚

Have been craving for smoked pork for a while now – so that’s what we are cooking today!ย Seriously though – we’ve been sharing recipes on smoked pork since the beginning of R&L and it got us wondering how many of our readers actually have access to smoked pork. For us in Nagaland, we make them in our kitchens over the fireplace (yes – every kitchen have a fireplace out here).For all those living outside Nagaland – share with our other readers how you source these stuffs.

Now the recipe – Smoked Pork in mashed potato and fresh green peas.
