Chili Pork with Pan Roasted Potatoes

Pork wasn't my favourite dish but after coming to Singapore, I realised that people here love to eat Pork. Very good pork is available in the markets & stores. You can select lean meat or any pieces you want here unlike in India. After making few Pork dishes, I have developed interest in Pork. The meat here is very tender & cooks really fast. I find it very juicy & tasty too. In Mangalore chili pork is very famous & you will find this in  almost all chatholic wedding. This one is a very quick & easy one.
