It was a beautiful day in Kaloor. The sun was out and the weather was perfect. So, there was no better time than the present to have the Malabar Spinach Soup with Pork. I had it at a restaurant and I remembered it tasted pretty good. And so I decided to try it at home. I ended up in the kitchen to prepare the dish and I was wondering if I should prepare it with pork tenderloin cutlets or with pork chops. I ended up deciding on pork tenderloin cutlets. I had a bag of pork cutlets at home and I was in a hurry to prepare the dish. So I took them out and I began to cut them with my knife. First, cut the pork cut

This autumn, I decided to try a new dish. One that I’ve seen a lot of people on Facebook and YouTube sharing; a simple, yet delicious one in particular. It’s called Malabar Spinach Soup with Pork.

For the longest time, my dad used to make this soup for me when I was a kid. He would use the pork strips that he would cut into bite-sized pieces to make the soup. I remember it would always consist of lots of vegetables and the soup would be full of flavor. I never really thought of what he was doing while he was making the soup but it made this soup taste really good. That is why I started making this soup every year during my vacation, with the idea to recreate the taste that I had as a kid.
