Goans are known for their roast chilli fry. We usually like to use our beef or pork roasts to make the chilli fry. Leftover roasts do come handy after the festive or celebratory feasts. You need just a few ingredients to dish up a quick chilli fry as the cooked meat is already matured in the spices. The best part is that you can make your adjustments with the chillies, onions and vinegar depending on your personal taste or preference.
So here is an easy way of adding a new dimension to your leftover pork roast. You can stuff it in buns, rolls, chapattis, pita bread, Goan poee or just about enjoy it as a starter.
