Chicken Vindaloo Recipe/Chicken Vindaloo/Kozhi Vindaloo/Chicken Vindaloo Recipe with step by step photos

Chicken Vindaloo is a very popular dish in Goa. I used to make this dish but never knew why it has the name vindaloo. But I searched it now to find that it has derived its name from the Portugese dish “Carne de Vinha d Alhos” which uses meat, vine and garlic. This dish has been modified with the substitution of vinegar and spices. Also check out other interesting and mouthwatering Chicken Varuvals/Fry/Biryanis/Gravies etc hereMutton/goat Meat Recipes,Fish & Egg Recipes

Roast and grind the ingredient mentioned in the roast and grind table, keep it aside.
Clean, cut and wash the chicken in to medium size pieces. Now add all the ingredients mentioned for marinate along with the ground powder to the chicken and mix well. Keep aside for at least 1 hour to overnight.

In a kadai heat oil, add bay leaves, onions, green chillies and sauté until golden brown. Now add the marinated chicken and sauté well. Add ¼ cup of water and cook the chicken cook well. Fry on low flame until oil separates or switch off in gravy consistency. Garnish with cilantro and mix in the sugar. The original recipe does not call in for tomato puree, but I added about 2 tsp of tomato puree which is totally optional.

Yummy chicken vindaloo is ready to be enjoyed. It is a perfect combo with rotis and dosas or with jeera rice.
