Start by combining the garlic paste, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, cardamom powder and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Next add two tablespoons of vegetable oil to the mixture and mix it until everything is combined. Finally, add the pork cubes to the marinade and ensure that all sides are coated. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and place it in your refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight for best results.
Once the pork is finished marinating, remove it from the refrigerator and heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add remaining two tablespoons of vegetable oil to the skillet and place in the pork cubes. Let the pork cubes cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring them halfway through until they are evenly browned on each side. Once the pork cubes have cooked through, add in either one cup of Vindaloo curry paste or half a cup of tomato sauce and mix everything together until it’s all combined. Finally, reduce the heat to low and let your Easy Pork Vindaloo simmer for about 10 minutes or until everything is warm and bubbly. Now your delicious Vindaloo is ready to eat! Enjoy!
In a large pot, add the 1 1⁄2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and heat it over a medium flame. When the oil is hot, add the remaining vindualloo marinade to the pot and fry for 3-4 minutes. Next add the potatoes to the skillet along with a cup of water and give everything a good stir. Finally,add butter to the mixture, reduce your heat to low/medium and let it simmer for 12-15 minutes or until your potatoes are cooked through. Serve with basmati rice or naan bread.
Once the potatoes are tender, add the chicken and increase the heat to medium high. Stir in some of the remaining vindaloo marinade as you cook the chicken for 10-minutes or until it’s cooked through and browned on all sides. Last but not least, stir in the coconut milk, Voatsiperifery pepper flakes, and bring everything to a simmer. For some added heat, feel free to add more pepper flakes or directly crush fresh pepper pods into your skillet. Finally season your Vindaloo with salt to taste and serve it warm over cooked basmati rice or naan bread.
