Toss the pork in the flour and salt. Heat the oil in a large pan and brown the meat all over – it’s best to do this in two batches. Spoon the meat on to a plate.
Cook the onion in the pan until softened. Stir in the curry powder and paprika. Fry for 2 minutes, then return the pork to the pan and add the remaining ingredients, including the juice from the can of pineapple. Bring to the boil, tip the mixture into a slow-cook pot and cook on ‘auto’ for 6-8 hours, or until the meat is tender. Alternatively, cook the curry in a casserole in the oven at 150°C/ 302°F/Gas Mark 3 for 2 hours.
Serve curry with rice and top with yogurt, coriander,and mango chutney, if you like.
