Whoo boy this is a tasty dish! Rich and spicy and the meat cooked up very tender. I added the water when I mixed in the vindaloo paste and mustard seed with the meat. I cooked it uncovered the last 15 minutes or so to thicken the sauce a bit. Served over couscous for a great meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!
Great Great recipe.. The paste (sauce) is awesome. Loved the spiciness in this as well as did the others.. Had some rice a roni spanish rice, that made for a complete meal. Made for Rookie Tag.
