Chicken Vindaloo

Aloha Everyone,

Vindaloo is a popular Indian curry dish that calls for meat to be marinated in a highly flavorful spicy mixture. In Indian restaurants, pork is usually offered but you can also get a choice of beef, goat, mutton, prawns or chicken. Per my son’s request, tonight’s dish was Chicken Vindaloo.  

Nine spices including essential tumeric makes this dish taste exotic and magical.

This meal was a result of a collaborative efforts between my daughter-in-law and me. I have an aversion towards handling raw meats and raw seafoods. Graciously, my daughter-in-law stepped up in preparing the chicken.

Two interesting discoveries: a reduction of spice quantity by a half was unnecessary for my son and me. We enjoy fiery spicy dishes!

For non-spicy eaters, chicken with onion, garlic, mushrooms and fresh asparagus was prepared as an alternative dish.

I love baking and cooking especially trying out new dishes from some of the places J.J. and I have visited. I am grateful that while the two of us are sheltering in La Jolla, we have the opportunities to practice our culinary skills.

Aloha -- Cathi
