Another delicious recipe from our Family-Favorite
Goan-Style Pork Vindaloo
- 2 dried red chiles
- 1 1/2 teaspoons whole cumin seed
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon cardamom seeds
1 (3-inch) stick of cinnamon
1 teaspoon whole black mustard seed
1 teaspoon fenugreek seed
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 medium onions, peeled and finely sliced
- 2 to 3 tablespoons water
- 1-inch cube gingerroot, peeled and finely
1 small whole head of garlic, peeled and separated
- 2 to 3 tablespoons water
2 1/2 pounds pork, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 cup water
Cooked Basmati or long grain white rice for accompaniment
- Using a spice or coffee mill, grind red
chiles, cumin seeds, peppercorns, cardamom seeds, cinnamon stick,
black mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. In a small bowl combine
the ground spices with the vinegar, salt and brown sugar; set
- In a large, deep frying pan (with lid
for use later), heat the oil over medium heat; add onions and
cook, stirring occasionally, until onions turn golden brown and
crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside the frying
pan with the remaining oil.
- Using an electric blender or food processor,
puree the fried onions with 2 to 3 tablespoons water.
- Combine the onion puree with reserved
spice mixture. This mixture is the Vindaloo paste.
- Again, using the blender or processor,
blend the gingerroot and garlic with 2 to 3 tablespoons water
into a smooth paste.
- Heat the oil in reserved frying pan over
medium-high heat. Cook the cubed pork in small batches to ensure
they brown nicely, placing cooked pork to a bowl until all pork
is browned nicely.
- Next, add the ginger-garlic paste to the
frying pan and reduce the heat to medium. Cook and stir paste
for a few seconds, then stir in the ground coriander and turmeric,
again cooking for just few seconds. Quickly stir in the browned
pork cubes and accumulated juices, the vindaloo paste and the
1 cup water. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover
and simmer for 1 hour or until pork is fork-tender, stirring
- Serve with cooked Basmati or long grain
