How To Make Lamb Vindaloo
Start with the classic vindaloo paste. You can choose either homemade or store bought paste. With the homemade version, you can make it ahead and store in the refrigerator or freezer. The traditional vindaloo paste is a flavorful combination of spices including red chilies, cumin, coriander etc.
The classic lamb vindaloo is a fiery curry highlighting the heat from spicy red chilies. However, feel free to reduce the heat level by using Kashmiri red chilies. You can also reduce the number of red chilies to bring down the heat.
I highly recommend marinating the lamb pieces in vindaloo paste overnight or at least an hour if possible. The basic idea is to let the lamb absorb all the amazingly good flavors.
To make the sauce for this lamb vindaloo curry, start with sautéing some onions followed by cooking the lamb in flavorful sauce. When it comes to cooking the lamb, you have three options – stove top, slow cook or instant pot. All the details are in the recipe section below.
Once the curry is ready, pair it with rotis, rice, a quick veg salad and pappadums. Oh so delicious!
