Curry Pork Kebabs

I actually found this recipe hanging on the meat counter and added my spin.
Per pound of pork,
mix 1 cup plain yogurt,
2 tbls orange juice concentrate,
1 tbls ground coriander,
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp curry- hot if you like-

Let the pork marinade overnite, shake off the excess and skewer it. I used orange and red peppers and red and sweet onions for a milder taste.

Saffron Jasmine Rice
Put the jasmine rice in the rice cooker, For 4 cups of rice I use about a tsp of saffron, and tbs each of cumin and ginger. You can add salt or lessen the water and add chicken or veggie broth. Make sure and stir it a few times while cooking so all the spices don't stay on top.

Tzatziki Sauce
This is best if you use real Greek yogurt-Trader Joe's has it.
Add some very thin sliced cucumber, a splash of lemon juice, a little mint if you have it. You can also add a little crushed garlic. Salt to taste, and if its too thick mix in a little EVOO. Serve cold, yes even over hot kebabs and rice. This stuff is great on spicy food too to cool it down.
