I had a tray of base sauce left in the freezer and really fancied a Chicken Vindaloo tonight. I had almost forgotten what a nice dish this is. I normally add a squirt of tomato ketchup to my vindaloo but I didn't have any so I added a few teaspoons of cider vinegar and a little jaggery instead. I also used 2 crushed kashmiri chillies, 2 finely chopped finger chillies, kashmiri mirch and deggi mirch for the heat in the curry. Lovely! Apparently the Passanda was ok too.

Vindaloo looks lovely, not had one for ages. I'm a  vinegar and  potato man, myself.
Made some base tonight so just need to decide on what curry  :)

Thanks Gav Iscon! Same for me it's the first vindaloo I've made for about a year so it had to have potato in it tonight and I did like the tang from the vinegar.

Well I guess I'll have to join in the new base production fad for the new year as I'm all out and your 2 posts have ignited my desire to eat curry SR.  Great looking curries indeed.  My Father-in-law used to love Pork Vindaloo. His favourite curry dish and I prepared it specially for him several times over the years before he departed. I haven't made a vindaloo in ages so it might be time to do another.  I also love potatoes and all the different vinegars, especially Malt.  I think I have about 8 different types in my pantry.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

Thanks for your comment Livo. I don't have that many types of vinegar in my cupboard but I have to say the apple cider vinegar worked a treat in this Vindaloo.
And there is nothing quite like the smell in the kitchen when a Vindaloo is being cooked!

Thanks CT! I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, the light over the table is a daylight LED 100w equivalent bulb.

All the best

Thanks, That combination is all you need for great pics, inspired ;)
Have to spend some time researching, as I hate going in phone shops.

Just realised, theres NO massive oil slick in your curries.
That maybe a problem for some. ;D

I agree, phone shops are something I try to avoid. Guitar shops I avoid for different reasons, kid in a candy store unfortunately :D

All the best

I had noticed that as well,  :-X

The Sony Xperia ZX Premium has a very good display and cameras. Unfortunately I never bother to take full advantage of mucking about with lighting.
Specs: 4K display, 19MP camera and 13MP front camera.

SoberRat, a nice old Fender (or a really nice shiny new one) will set you back a bit more than a mobile phone.  Natural ACV is a great health product. I used to make gallons of the stuff as my wife used to include in her horses' diet.  At one point I was drinking a cup a day. Love the stuff.  I still have a bucket full of Mother of Vinegar from a few years ago when I last did a batch.

The addition of vinegar gives it that distinctive taste for me and makes it much better than the hotter madras that some places try and pass off.

As for camera phones, I have a Galaxy S7 and I've had some great photos with it. i sometimes run the photos through Snapseed as depending on the lighting, i find that some of the earlier or coloured LED colour wash the pictures.
I'm due a new phone and waiting for the Huawei Pro 20 Mate to drop in price. The camera on it is fantastic.
