This is another pork delicacy from Goa. This recipe uses both pork and pork liver. The main difference between this and the vindaloo recipe is that this one uses butter as a cooking fat instead of oil. There are two recipes that I have come across and I will provide both. The first one used East Indian bottle masala , whose recipe I will put up soon.
An Eat Indian wedding is incomplete without Sorpotel or Vindaloo on the menu.
