Vindalho Curry


  • 3 large onions finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 cubed potatoes
  • 1 kilogram Meat, Chicken or Fish
  • 4 tablespoons VINDALHO CURRY PASTE (use less for fish)
  • Optional: 1-2 green chilies de-seeded
  • Optional: 1/2 cup fresh chopped coriander


Heat oil in saucepan. Add sliced onions and fry until golden brown.

Add Vindalho Curry Paste and (optional) coriander leaves. Mix well and fry gently on low heat, stirring to prevent sticking. If necessary, sprinkle a little water.

When mixture looks “glazed” and has an appetizing aroma, add meat, chicken, prawn** or fish** pieces and fry until brown, stirring occasionally.

Add water – enough to cover meat – and cook on low heat covered until meat is nearly tender.

Add potatoes and simmer on low heat until cooked. If more gravy required, add hot water, mix well and simmer briefly.

De-seeded chillies may be added

Add salt if required.

Simmer on low for another 5 minutes.
