Indian Vinadloo

Indian Vinadloo Vindaloo is the result of a marriage of Goan cuisine and Portuguese cultures. The Goans took what was originally a Portuguese dish and turned it into an exciting, spicy-hot curry that is now synonymous with Goan cuisine. Indian spices were added to Vindaloo which give it the exotic flavour many have come to associate with Vindaloo. Vindaloo is also a very popular dish in England (much like Chicken Tikka Masala).

It is well spiced with red chillies, garlic and vinegar and best served with beef, but is also excellent with lamb, and chicken.

According to legend, a cook once added too much salt to their vindaloo, so they added boiled potatoes to balance out the flavour. Now it is common practice in Orissa and West Bengal to add potatoes to goat or lamb curry.

Vindaloo also has musical history too. The dish is mentioned in the punk song "I Just Want to Have Something to Do" by the Ramones. And the unofficial anthem of the 1998 FIFA World Cub English football team was a song called "Vindaloo" inspired by the dish.

If the tunes weren't enough, here's some inspiration for you: AHG Vindaloo Fish Curry.
