Coorgi Pork | Delicious Sweet Aroma

Coorgi Pork

Coorgi pork is a traditional dish from Coorg with a complete twist unlike my previous post of black pepper pork recipe.

Coorg also known as Kodagu, is a district in South-Indian state of Karnataka. It’s a hill station with a stunning landscape and because of its breathtaking view, history, nature, cool climate it is equated to Scotland known as “Scotland of India”. It has a lot to offer to tourists with acres of tea and coffee plantations with vast stretches of the pristine grasslands.
