About the recipe

It is a spicy curry made using spices and vinegar. Vinegar is an optional ingredient and can be skipped if necessary. It is a curry dish that has been introduced in India centuries ago by the people Portuguese.

I have made it using an instant pot but the same recipe can be made using the slow cooker method or using a pressure cooking technique.

The spices to use to make this curry are simple and always available at home. They are whole garam masala spices, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies as the main ingredients.

Onions are added as the base gravy and slow cooking the mutton until it gets tender makes the curry juicy, gives a good gravy and makes it suitable to eat with any dish.

The ingredients are quite simple and easily available at stores. The lamb or mutton or goat that w choose to make it can be boneless or meat with bones.

Other recipes to check out in non-vegetarian dishes are chicken liver, chicken sukka, murgh makhani, chicken gravy etc…

Ingredients

lamb or goat or mutton: I am using lamb with bones with less fat, but one can even opt for mutton without bones or boneless meat to make the curry.

cinnamon stick, cardamom, cloves: These spices add a spicy touch and aroma to the gravy curry.

black peppercorns: To make the gravy spicier, adding black peppercorns after roasting is essential. Making a powder after roasting the spices and making a paste gives an amazing masala paste to add to the curry.

dried red chillies: The red color to the gravy and the spice flavor comes out of adding this spice. There are some red chillies that may be spicier and one has to carefully choose the number of chillies. If the chillies are spicy reduce their quantity while roasting.

coriander seeds and cumin: These two spices give a delicious flavor as well as a pleasant aroma to any curry and vindaloo always uses these two basic ingredients to add.

onions: Adding sliced onions gives a rich gravy and does not make the lamb look roasted. It can be made into a thin curry or thick gravy as per requirement.

dry spices: These are basic spices to be added to any recipe.

curry leaves: To give a fresh and pleasant aroma to the lamb vindaloo curry, fresh curry leaves are added.

Slow cooker method goat vindaloo

This is an easy process for curry and one does not need an instant pot to make it. It can be made in a cooking pot in a slow cooking method too.

Just after marinating mutton, saute onions in a pot with ginger garlic paste, add the lamb marinade to the onions and roast well.

Close the lid and slow cook for at least 1 hour for the mutton to tenderize well.

If required add little water and keep stirring in between. It takes a little longer time to cook in slow cooking method but gives out a delicious juicy taste.

Tips

The same recipe can be followed to make chicken vindaloo and does not need any marination. Just add the vindaloo paste to the chicken after roasting the chicken, mix well and cook the gravy until done.

Since it is a chicken, it gets tenderized and cooked in 30-35 minutes.

Storage

The roasted spices to make vindaloo powder or paste can be blended into a fine powder and stored airtight in the refrigerator and used when required to make any kind of vindaloo dish such as lamb, mutton, chicken etc…

Roasting the spices and making them in powdered form is much better than storing the paste. Use it for few days as the powder can get rid of its aromatic fragrances after few days and does not give out the fresh-roasted smell.

Variations

The same vindaloo recipe can be made using a stovetop pressure cooker and can be pressure cooked for 4-5 whistles or until mutton gets tender. Just add little water while pressure cooking in order to avoid burning.

The same recipe can be followed to make chicken vindaloo and hope to update the same as I keep updating my recipes and posting new ones.

Additional spices such as garam masala powder and other Goan spices too can be added to enhance its taste.

Faq

What is lamb vindaloo made of?

It is a spicy curry made using lamb, chicken or mutton. The spicy gravy is due to the hot chillies added to the vindaloo paste and also slight vinegar taste makes it a different dish that is not rich and creamy.

How does it taste like?

It is definitely not a rich, creamy, sweet-tasting recipe but slightly hot and spicy and the spicy flavours can be reduced by using fewer chillies and peppers and adding spicy ingredients as per our needs.
