Sorpotel is a dish served at festivals. It is served with sannas, a type of rice bread. I have included the recipe for sannas, even though you will not be able to make it ;- it uses the sap of the coconut palm (toddy) as the source of yeast.
Masala - grind the ingredients into a paste with a little vinegar.
Wash and boil the uncut pork, liver and heart. Cool and cube into small pieces then brown in a little pork fat, remove and set aside.
Add ginger, garlic and onions and fry until onions change colour. Add masala and stir and fry for a minute or so then return meat to pan along with the tamarind and some of the vinegar if more liquid is required. Cook on a low heat for 1- 1½ hours until meat is tender. Add the chillies and blood (which may require a good stir prior to adding T.H.), cook for another ten minutes or so.
