Hi,
 
I have made a small game on windows using WIN32 and MFC, now I want it run on my MAC. Can any one of you suggest WIN32/MFC counterpart in MAC or a strategy to go about it? (I am new to MAC programming).
 
Please help.

Check out Cocoa. though you would have to use Apples "Objective C"

http://developer.apple.com/cocoa/

Carbon is the Mac eqivilent of the Win32 API.

I want to minimize my coding and porting effort. In this light what startegie should I follow i.e whether adding a win32 simulation layer will be better option then goig for re-code. Please advice.

Hio!!

Go for Cocoa it has better suport for programming and will reduce you coding effort too.
Re-code is is a beter option. I'll go for it.
