Pork Vindaloo Recipe—Anglo-Indian Recipe—Christmas Special

Pork Vindaloo Recipe—Anglo-Indian Recipe—Christmas Special

Pork vindaloo is hot-sour-spicy, almost pickle-like, braise of fatty pork with lots of garlic, vinegar and chillies. Vindaloo was born in Goa sometime in the 16th or 17th century after the Portuguese set up colony there. The word vindaloo comes from the Portuguese recipe ‘vino de alhos’ where ‘vino’ refers to (wine) vinegar and ‘alho’ is the word for garlic. Vindaloo is a fusion of Portuguese, Goan and South Indian ingredients and cooking.

This particular recipe comes from the book ‘Curry: A Tale of Cooks and Conquerors’ by Lizzie Collingham. The book, besides being one of the best writings on Indian food history, has some fantastic recipes such as this one. We looked at a lot of recipes, both online and in books, but honestly this recipe of vindaloo—though a little more elaborate in the number of spices—is in our opinion one of the best.

Considering just how good this vindaloo tastes, it is really easy to make if you have all the ingredients. While the original recipe used pork, you can use duck instead of pork too.

    Being from Assam, NE India, pork is one of my favorites. This recipe is almost same to one of the way which we people here in Assam make pork. Watching it was absolute delight. 🌻
