Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4



  • 1 large brown onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 2 carrots, very finely diced
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder, plus 1 tsp for pork
  • 2 Tbsp plain flour
  • 270ml can coconut cream
  • 1 Tbsp vegan stock powder + 1 cup boiling water, mixed
  • 1 tsp mango chutney

To Serve:

  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • ¼ bunch coriander, leaves roughly chopped


  1. Prepare pork according to package instructions, mixing in ½ tsp salt and 1 tsp curry powder.  Mould into 4 round patties, cover and refrigerate until step 4.
  2. In a large pan, fry 3 Tbsp oil, onion, carrot, garlic, ginger, and spices over medium heat for about 5-8 mins, or until carrot has softened slightly.

  4. In a separate pan, fry the pork patties in a thin layer of oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towel, then slice into strips.
