For this pork chop recipe, let's make the dry rub first. Preheat a thick skillet over medium heat, and add cumin seeds, coriander seeds and black peppercorns. Stir and toast them for 7 minutes, until crispy and fragrant. Remove from heat, and allow the mixture to cool down. Transfer it in a mixer, and add sea salt and sugar. Grind for 2 - 3 minutes to make a fine rub for pork chops. In a platter, place the pork chops (after trimming the fat parts). Sprinkle dry rub over the pork chops on both sides, about ¼ teaspoon on each piece. Rub with fingers for even coating.
Following meat preparation step, preheat a heavy frying pan. Adjust heat to medium high heat, and add 1 teaspoon olive oil. Carefully place a pork chop, making sure that the thickest part is in the center of the pan. Repeat the same for the remaining meat cuts. Cook them until browned (3 - 5 minutes based on thickness). Just before turning, lightly sprinkle salt. As you flip them, lower heat, and sear for the same time for the other side. Again sprinkle a dash of salt. Retain them in the pan for some time, and serve hot with baked green beans and a spicy dip sauce.
