Goa is a tourist mecca on the Southwest coast of India has its own amazing flavours, with many influences. This is a Portuguese inspired dish, and every Catholic Goan home has its version. Best eaten with rice or crusty bread!
The Portuguese invaded Goa and brought their people, traditions and cuisine to this bountiful coastline. Vindaloo is spicy, reddish-brown in colour and consists mainly of tomatoes, vinegar, garlic and freshly ground spices. Traditionally cooked with pork, this sauce tenderizes the meat as it gently cooks in it but works just as well with any other protein or crispy potatoes, mushrooms, or even mixed veggies and chickpeas.
Instructions: Add the Indian Pantry Goan Vindaloo sauce to one pound of the protein or vegetables of your choice, coat well and then add half a cup of water and simmer until heated through. The veggies or protein should be parboiled when you add them. Serve over rice or dunk a crusty dinner roll into this tangy goodness!
