Koorka is an amazing root vegetable. Though the English name assigned locally is Chinese Potatoes, it’s not of China origin, but it’s East African where it’s called Country Potato.
Apparently of mint family, it has a distinct flavour tastes really good from the experience of tasting it in Thrissur where it’s a delicacy.
Predominantly an ingredient to meat dish, it is best when cooked with pork. One can use any meat based on personal preferences but I am not sure of it’s suitability as a vegetarian dish.
It’s not easy. The tough skin is almost an impossible task to remove. That’s when I saw peeled and skinned koorka in Lulu hyper market.
Went ahead and bought some nice pork for making the very special dish. Got hold of a recipe on the internet and made it according to the instructions.
Actually it turned out very good, in fact exceeded expectations. Yummy indeed.
