Naga Dish | Snail and Smoked Pork

Thanks to a generous food-loving human being for sharing this recipe featuring two of our favourites in one dish : Snails (we call it ‘hamok‘ in Nagamese) and smoked pork. [We will soon feature him for more mouth-watering recipes, straight from his kitchen.] 🙂 It’s so simple to cook and it’s super yummy. Let’s cook! Ingredients : 2  large Potatoes 1 head Naga garlic 1 medium sized Naga Ginger 5-8 Naga dried red chilly/Green Chilly 4 table spoon of fermented bambooshoot 1 large tomato 1/2 cup chopped coriander 1  kilo of smoked pork 1 kilo of  fresh snail 1 medium onion/Spring onions Directions: Soak the snails in clear water for 48 hrs (so that they cleanse themselves). Change the water every 24 hours. Prepare the snails: Smack the pointed end of the snail with a spoon so that the flavors of the spices goes inside. Put all the ingredient together in a heavy lid <aluminium>dish /pressure cooker and cook for about 45 minutes to 1 hr. Serve with Rice or Rice Beer. Bon appetit!
