    reya doucette's Note:

    This recipe comes straight from Goa and was a favorite family Sunday lunch my Mother adopted into our North Indian eating habits when family friends and family would gather together. Vindaloo is best when meat is marinated overnight with the spices and kept overnight after cooking before serving. The longer it is kept the more the Vindaloo matures in flavor. In our home Vindaloo was cooked in 6 lb batches. I have simplified it down to 2 lb or one kg. Keeping the fat on the meat is very important as the fat is considered a delicacy. I buy a kg pork roast and cube the meat. Slightly freezing the meat helps cut the meat easily. The Vindaloo is traditionally red chili very hot. I use a coffee grinder to grind or powder my dry spices.

    1. 1
      Rinse pork cubes well and place directly in bowl. Do not pat meat dry.
    2. 2
      Add and mix all other above ingredients well together with pork, cover and keep in fridge overnight.
    3. 3
      Turn all the meat and remaining liquid into cooking pot on high heat. As soon as it comes to a boil lower heat, cover with fitting lid and simmer on slow fire for 1 hour in its own juices.
    4. 4
      Stir every 15 minutes to make sure bottom is not burning. At the end of 45 minutes, taste to ensure meat is tender. As soon as it is cooked turn off the stove and let vindaloo cool in pot.
    5. 5
      Keep overnight, heat and serve the next day with white rice and sliced onions sprinkled with salt.
    6. 6
      8 whistles on high heat if you are cooking in a pressure cooker, turn off stove and let cool in closed cooker.

      Very easy to make and the result is stupendous. A fiery hot and aromatic dish that will be loved by both chileheads and Indian devotees. I used 2.5 Lbs. boneless pork chops, nicely marbled with a little fat, cut into cubes as directed. I believe a fatty, less expensive cut of pork will work just as well, if not better. I omitted the cardamom and curry sprigs (didn't have either one) and cooked the dish in the oven for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees in a heavy cast iron skillet with an equally heavy lid. I figured this would work as well as cooking on the stove top. I believe it did. Serve this with rice, Nan bread and a side dish of cool yogurt. Truly good.
