Deep fried pork chops with nutmeg, lemon and chili

Nutmeg looks like new to me, but i just discovered that is one of the ingredients my grandmother used in her “mama”. It is something that she chew with tobacco, lime, and “buyo” (betel pepper leaves). It is difficult to explain it further, but I have known and been familiar with it since I was five.

With some spices search, I discovered that nutmeg is good on grilled or fried meat. It’s nutty and spicy flavor is a perfect compliment for meat.

Try this at home.
