Ingredients for Chicken Vindaloo

500 grams Chicken
4 Onions
4 Tomatoes
1 Tbsp Coriander Seeds
1 Tbsp Cumin Seeds
12 cloves Garlic
1 inch Ginger
1 Tbsp Red Chili Powder
1 Tsp Turmeric Powder (optional)
1 Tsp Garam Masala Powder
2 Dried Red Chilies
1 Tsp Tamarind Pulp
½ cup Mustard Oil
Salt to taste

How to make Chicken Vindaloo

Take the onions and peel them. Wash them in water and then chop them. Keep it aside after chopping it.

Now take the tomatoes and chop them into small pieces and keep them in a separate bowl.

Peel the ginger and garlic and keep it ready to grind into a paste.

Take the coriander seeds, cumin seeds and mix them together in a bowl.

Now we will roast the coriander and cumin seeds for two minutes.

After roasting the coriander and cumin seeds, add it to the ginger and garlic and grind everything together to a thick paste.

Now cut the chicken into desired pieces and wash them properly.

Add the dried red chilies.

Now add the grinded spices that include the ginger, garlic, coriander seeds and cumin seeds.

Add the red chili powder now, if you want spicier you can increase the quantity of red chili powder.

Add the turmeric powder now. This is optional as it is not necessary. I have added turmeric powder because I like its flavor.

Now add salt as much as you want, you need to add little extra salt than usual because we are going to add tamarind water later.

Add the garam masala powder now.

Now add the chopped onions.

Add the chopped tomatoes now into the recipe.

Now add the mustard oil. I have added half cup mustard oil, you can add more as we are going to prepare this dish with this oil only.

Mix everything together properly and keep it aside for 30 minutes. If you have time then you can leave it longer as it will improve the taste.

Now transfer the marinated chicken into a cooking vessel and cover and cook till the water dries up and the chicken gets cooked. Please do not add water to this recipe as the taste will spoil.

Once the chicken boils, open the lid and start stirring.

Take the tamarind pulp and add little water, dissolve the tamarind pulp properly and strain the water as we are going to add only the tamarind water and not the pulp.

When the chicken is cooked, add the tamarind water now and stir for 5 minutes.

Get ready to taste the mouth smacking Chicken Vindaloo now.
