How to Make Chicken Vindaloo :

 

  • You can use store bought fried onions for this recipe. If not, slice the onions and deep fry in oil till it turns crispy and brown in color.
  • Grind together all the ingredients under ‘to grind’ adding water as needed to make a very smooth paste.
  • Mix this paste with the chicken and let it marinate for at least half an hour.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the marinated chicken along with the masala (marinade).
  • Add the coconut milk, potatoes and required salt to this. Add more water if you want more gravy.
  • Cover and cook till the chicken is done and oil separates from the gravy.
  • The fried onions and the red chillies give a bright red color to the gravy. So it does not need any garnishing.
