Chicken Vindaloo


Vindaloo is a Indian Curry from the regeion of Goa.
The name Vindaloo is derived from the Portuguese    dish  " Carne de Vinha d' Alhos" , which is a dish of meat, usually pork, with wine and garlic.
The dish was originally modified in   Mumbai by the substitution of vinegar for the wine, and the addition of red Kashmir chillies (not as spicy but abundant in colour).
The dish evolved into the vindaloo curry in Goa , with the addition of plentiful amounts of traditional spice and using palm vinegar instead of red wine.
Ofcoure now they make this curry with all kinds of meat.

And I have used Chicken.
I think if you are live in India or more in Goa you can get hold of the permade Spice paste.
I have used premade spice mix which is available here in Bottles which is improted from UK, but have to say this is not good at all if you compare the premade spice paste I used.
Ofcourse as I was lucky to get from Goa itself.
I had mentioned in one of my earlier post here that hubby had gone to Goa and Aparna of  My Diverse Kitchen had send me goodies and one of the things she send was this spice paste.

So here goes the recipie.
500 gm Chicken cubed Iused the recipe on the packet with a bit according to my taste)
3 oniones finley chopped ( I made a puree)
4 tsp of vindaloo spice paste
2 tomatoes chopped
1 tsp of Kashmiri chillie powder.
2 potatoes boiled and cube
3 tbsp of oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp Vinegar
Salt to taste.
Directions.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onione puree till golden brown, add the chopped tomatoes, the Vindaloo Masala paste, chillie powder followed by the chiciken pieces and salt.
Fry all of the for few minutes, then add a bit of water and cook till the chicken is almost done.
Add the cooked potatoes and cook for futher few minutes add the tsp of vinegar , stir well and serve with hot plain rice.

this looks delicious...i now have 2 get my hands on some goan masala..

sra said...

How nice to get something from where it originates! Having said that, I found the vindaloos and the recheaidos and the classic Goan dishes a bit too similar and quite "normal" (I don't like normal in places like Goa, should be special.) The best food in Goa, I felt, came from the little shacks near tourist spots - the fish curry is to die for.
