Oma Khaji

Oma Khaji
Oma Khaji is the most popular and favourite starter of the Bodos, served with the local Bodo brew called Jow.
To cook Oma Khaji you need :
500g fresh Oma Bedot (Pork).
Diced Oma Bedot
4 to 5cups of chopped Thalet Posla ( tender trunk of banana plant). Take only the very tender layers.
Paste of 1big Onion, little Ginger and 10pods of Garlic. A few Bay leaves. Chopped Green Chilly to taste. A bunch of fresh chopped Coriander.
2tsps turmeric. 2tsps ground Cardamom+Cinnamon+Clove. Salt to taste. 2tblsps oil.
Pressure cook Oma Bedot adding little salt, turmeric and a cup of water. Make sure it's not over cooked, should be rather half cooked. Remove and keep aside.
Heat oil and fry all the ingredients including the cooked Oma Bedot, leaving aside only the chopped Coriander. Cook covered on a moderate heat stirring occasionally. Do not add water.The Thalet Posla should be cooked well and some of it should be dissolved.
Add chopped Coriander when done and stir well. Your Oma Khaji is ready to eat.
