Pork Belly Recipe From North East India

This is a pure spicy pork belly recipe which belong to North East part of India. And this goes well with sticky/jasmine rice.
Well, it is my crazy imagination/creativity which I have tried on pork belly and luckily it turned out to be delicious. Someone who is crazy for non veg, he can't get rid of this dish. Even someone can try with mutton/Lamb/Chicken pieces as well, if pork is not their choice.
