Chicken Vindaloo – Amazing!!!


Chicken was never my first choice for a curry, until I ate this!! This recipe is so good that it has been my favourite self cooked curry for several years, ever since it was taught to me by an Indian lady who showed me how to make it – thanks Lena!!.

I’ve made it over 150 times and it is always the GUARANTEED curry I cook for friends and visitors.

NOTE: The video is a few years old now and the recipe has evolved, so while the vid shows the method, please read the recipe for the updated version – even better!

It was very hot outside so they had the aircon on, doors and windows closed.  I watched and made notes as Lena showed me the simple procedure. It took time to create and then to cook so we had a few beers in the heavily curry laden atmosphere. Lena cooked up enough to save for another day, but Kerry and I demolished it all!! Zana from SpiceZ  says ‘The Secret Ingredient is LOVE!!” and looking back I think that is the way Lena cooks curries also. I use Spicez Chicken curry mix which is a perfect mix for this dish.
I’m a big fan of SpiceZ , their spice is always fresh and you get a generous quantity for a reasonable price. here’s a link to their Chicken curry spice mix. This packet also contains dried red chillies, curry leaves, Pandanus leaves and other herbs and SpiceZ, which make the curry even better – it that is possible!!

I used to cook poppadums in the microwave as per the link below, but I’ve gone back to frying them, it is so much better. I use canola oil for that. is how I cook Pappadums in the microwave

I usually cook 20 legs and freeze whatever is leftover in single portions. Most curries taste better after freezing, but this is the one curry that I find just as good fresh.
