Odds and Ends Vindaloo
« on: December 14, 2014, 09:01 PM »
Odds and Ends Vindaloo

Its a bit uncanny, but using up what’s left in the fridge, sometimes creates a memorable meal.

I had 1 Potato, half an Onion, Half a Green capsicum, a small piece of Red Capsicum half a bulb of Garlic
and five pieces of precooked Chicken. The tub endings of Tomato and G&G and Green Chilli pastes.
Also the last carton of frozen Garabi 400ml in the freezer.

So i cooked a Hot and spicy BIR Vindaloo style curry with a few chips

Method and ingredients cooked in order
Deep Fry the Chips and towards the end, add 4 cloves of garlic, fry golden/crunchy and dice.

Vindaloo
Vegetable Ghee / 3tbs
2 tbs of Service Onions
Pinch of Salt and a Pinch of Kasuri Methi (Fenugreek Leaf)
Bhun/Saute and sweat 2mins

Add 1 tbs Garlic Ginger Paste
Bhun/Saute and cook out the rawness 1min

Add in quick succession
3 tbs of Tomato Puree dilute
1 htsp Mix Powder
2 tbs of Hot Chilli Powder (Make this by grinding a cheap packet of tiny Red Birdseye chillis)
1 tsp (level) Black Pepper Powder
1 tbs White Wine Vinegar
Blanched Red and Green Capsicum pieces
Bhun/Saute and form the masala 2mins (make sure you cook this well)

Add a portion of precooked Chicken and combine
Add 1 tbs Minced Green Chilli Paste and combine
300ml of thin base gravy/Garabi and give a really good mix, deglaze and combine. 30secs.
Add golden garlic and combine.

Put a lid on and crank the heat up to the highest and boil 3-4mins.

Lid off and scrape down, reduce heat to medium and top up with the remaining 100ml of Garabi. 1 min
Add a bit garnish or Naga Oil and let it sit and prepare to serve. 1 min.

Thats it, a nice saucy Curry and Chips, made from odds and ends, using the curry cooking spoon for all measures.
Cooked on a 3.5kW gas hob with a 23cm Aluminium Omelette/Curry pan.
Straightforward BIR cooking at home, NO crackpot theories or myths involved. ;D



Served with a toasty TavaNaan (Dough ball from the freezer) works fine.



cheers Chewy

Vindaloo and naan look perfect, CT, but there is no way I can envisage eating chips with my curry !

I disagree Phil,  I could happily eat chips with that Vindaloo.  Absolutely jaw dropping, thanks for posting Chewy.

Whoaaa! I did Sri Lankan Chicken (Chicken Ceylon as was!) for dinner tonight and I was feeling pretty full until I saw your photos, CT. I reckon I could manage a bit extra - looks delicious! :)
