The dish is bustling with spices and flavor and one of the very distinct feature is the use of vinegar.

As the Portugese ruled our Goa for long enough to influence their cuisine, this Lamb Vindaloo recipe-Mutton Vindaloo recipe has a distinct feature of it. The Vindaloo recipe has to be one of the widely popular Indian dishes in the world. You will find lot of variations of the same across the world’s restaurants.
In my version, I like to soak the spices in vinegar and grinding it into a paste. I simply love the enhanced taste from the soaking and marination. I have used the regular red chili which don’t give a very bright color but are very, very hot. But you can always make it milder to your taste and use Kashmiri mirch. This will help make the curry red and pretty but still not very hot. Or you can use less of the red chili mentioned.
