Pork Vindaloo

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Hot and tangy, this iconic dish is from the heart of beautiful Goa on India's western coast. Eat it with plain boiled rice or Jeera Rice and a leafy green salad.


  • 1 kg pork cut into 1" cubes with all the fat removed
  • 8 tbsps Vindaloo Masala paste
  • 2 large onions chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp palm/brown sugar or maple syrup
  • 2" stick of cinnamon
  • 6 cloves
  • 3 tbsps vegetable/canola/sunflower cooking oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Water


  • Coat the pork well with the vindaloo masala paste. Allow it to marinate for a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Heat the oil and fry the onions till golden. Add the ginger paste, cinnamon and cloves and fry for a minute.
  • Add the palm sugar and stir well.
  • Add the meat only (leave behind marinade paste/liquid for later) and brown well.
  • Add the paste/liquid that the meat was marinated in, now. Add a cup of water and salt to taste.
  • Stir well, reduce flame and cook till pork is tender.
  • Serve with plain boiled rice or Jeera Rice.

So far, I've made the Vinadaloo paste and am marinating the pork. Smells heavenly! I can't wait to taste the finished product.
