      I made this recipe, only changed it to "chicken vindaloo" as per Chia's instructions. It was wonderful and since DH doesn't eat seafood, this was my attempt at making an Indian dish that he would like. The only change was to use chicken in place of the shrimp. The combination of spices was superb. I would make this easy dish again. Thanks, Chia, for an easy and tasty meal! I think this can be easily made into a vegetarian dish, by subbing vegetarian broth and TVP chunks, and allowing them to marinate briefly in the sauce during step 3. This recipe has much potential. For a change, beef strips could possibly be subbed for the shrimp, and thus a "beef vindaloo" recipe could be made as well.

      Definitely a quick, easy and healthy option for indian food, but by no means authentic. I didn't have cloves, and I omitted the raisins. I found it to be very liquidy- would've liked less gravy, i think. I also doubled the spice amounts. We liked it, and we will make it again.
