About Chicken Vindaloo:


There are many stories about the Famous Chicken Vindaloo Recipe. This curry came from the fusion of Portuguese, Goan, and British influences. In fact, the name “Vindaloo” is actually a guarded version of a Portuguese dish called Carne de vinha d’alhos which translates to “garlic wine marinated in meat”.

In the 1800s, this famous chicken vindaloo dish was made Indian using palm vinegar instead of wine and was traditionally made from pork or beef. The dish developed further when the British ruled India – in that version the meat was marinated overnight with vinegar, ginger, garlic, and spices and then cooked the next day.

When made on the right side, a Chicken Vindaloo should be reddish-maroon in color, slightly sweet, with heat levels – red dry chilies, green chilies, and black peppers and most importantly two different sour notes from vinegar and tamarind.

Variations / Tips / Tricks

  1. The authentic recipe calls for palm vinegar – if you do not have rice or cider vinegar and a tablespoon of sugar (or jaggery).
  2. You can skip the tomato and replace it with fresh tamarind. Take tamarind and soak it in hot water for about 15 minutes. Run it through a simmer. Also, mix the juice with vinegar to make base masala.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of coconut milk cream to the masala paste while grinding. Adding coconut milk cream to the curry was something that the Hindus of Goa introduced in this dish. This makes Chicken Vindaloo curry sauce creamy.
