Valerie Sollis KumarI am a Goan, but I don't think thats fair to compare the Goan Pork Vindaloo to any other Vindaloo. Each has its own identity! I know for a fact, the Anglo Indian Pork Vindaloo is delicious! As good as the Goan one!
Lester Josephmouth watering.....Maureen....during the 80's there was this meat dish, it was Andhra specialty, very spicy curry where for 1 kg beef one kilo onions were chopped in to it plus a kilo tomatoes were added, no water was added in, do you know any such recipe my friend.......I lost the ingredients that were added in, remember that red chillies and pepper, ginger garlic, the big jeera were also ground plus garam masala......the rest I forget.
Walter ParkerSambit you make my mouth water with every dish and recipe that you post. I'm literally salivating. My wife, who is also Bengali, loves your posts. Thanks for sharing all your absolutely delicious-looking dishes 👌😊

Top 1st pic "Mutton Keema Gravy" (minced meat).
Step 1. Wash once, not more than once the minced meat since it comes washed and washing more number of times, its flavour essence gets lost !
Now garnish the minced meat (250 gms) with 3 each of finely chopped onions and tomatoes, 2 tbsps ginger garlic paste, 1 tsp each of turmeric, red chili powder and 1/2 tsp each of coriander, cumin powder and salt to taste. Keep marinaded for 20 mins. During this time Step 2 Boil baby potatoes, peel off skin and fry golden brown.
Both Step 1 & 2 pictures given in comments below.
Now on heavy bottomed wok/kadhai put the marinaded minced meat (use the same cooking oil 4 tbsps you fried the pototates). Stir and fry to dryness (onions, tomatoes even minced meat will realise water so add less water) just add little more than half cup of water, stir and keep in flame for 10 mins stir occasionally, then add the potatoes, few green chilies, 1/2 tsp garam masala powder it's ready to serve. Feedback/ suggestions most welcome.
