India | Goa


Traditionally made with pork, Vindaloo was brought to Goa by the Portuguese. This popular Goan dish is cooked in a distinctive style by using plenty of wine, vinegar and garlic. This hot and spicy blend of Portuguese origin is regarded as the king of curries. This is cooked in a tangy sharp sauce with strong mustard oil, with added onion, turmeric, red pepper, and tamarind water. The fiery hot vindaloo is a favorite dish of the Catholics, who make up a third of the population of Goa. Today, this spicy food is made with chicken or lamb, seafood and even vegetables.
