*I was doing my daily blog reading and one post caught my eye from Moinette which she got inspired from Maagchi. Pork and chilli pepper for me screams comfort food and just right up my alley. I added a few twist of my own and substitute  for what I have in the pantry. I added tofu just because I love tofu. My husband and I love the dish the only problem is we don’t know how to pronounce the name 🙂 enJOY!!!
