Remove from the pot and set aside. 2 To the same pot, add onions and carrots and sauté until the onions soften. Add garam masala, paprika and curry powder, then sauté for a few seconds to cook the spices. Add garlic and mushrooms and stir to coat in the spices. 3 Return pork to the pot, add stock, season to taste, bring to a simmer, cover and allow to cook for an hour or until the meat is tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in the parsley. 4 For the dombolo: Place the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt into a bowl and mix together. Slowly add the water, a little at a time until a soft dough forms (you may need more or less water). Tip onto a floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic (± 10 minutes). Place into an oiled bowl, cover and allow to prove for 30 minutes or until doubled in size. 5 Tip out onto a floured surface and knead to knock out the air, then divide into even pieces (between 6-8) and form into balls. Place the dough balls onto the stew, cover with a lid then simmer over low heat for 20-25 minutes or until dough balls have risen and cooked through.
