2 1/2 pounds onions - skinned
4 ounces ghee or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
1 1/2 pounds boneless pork -- cubed
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chile powder -more if liked

Preparation / Directions:

Chop half the onions very finely. Heat the ghee in a heavy-based saucepan or flame-proof casserole, add the onions and the lime or lemon juice and fry very gently for 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until light golden and quite dry. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate. Add the pork to the residual ghee in the pan and fry over high heat until well browned on all sides. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a separate plate. Thinly slice the remaining onions. Add to the pan, with the coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, salt and chile powder. Fry gently for about ten minutes until the onions are soft, then return the pork to the pan and stir to mix with the onions. Moisten with a little water if necessary, then cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until the pork is tender. Add the reserved chopped onion to the pork and mix well. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce is thick and almost dry. Turn into a warmed serving dish and serve hot.
