    Directions

    1. Blend onion, ginger, garlic, sugar, spices and vinegar until almost smooth. Coat pork belly with 1/2 the paste. Cover and chill overnight to marinate. Cover remaining mixture and chill until required.
    2. To make the yellow dhal, heat ghee over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger. Cook for 3 mins, or until soft. Add chili, mustard seeds and turmeric. Cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add split peas, tomatoes and stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, for 45-50 mins, or until tender.
    3. Meanwhile, heat ghee in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook pork, in batches, for 5-6 mins, or until browned all over. Set aside. Add reserved paste to pan and cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add 1 2/3 cups water. Return pork to pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 mins, or until sauce thickens and pork is cooked through. Serve with fresh cilantro and yellow dhal.
