Updated: Nov 21, 2019

Doesn't that look delicious?! Lamb vindaloo is a flavorful Indian curry dish that can be served with naan (check out our recipe) or with rice. While it might seem intimidating to work with lamb, this recipe is forgiving and easy to make in large quantities!


3 lbs. Lamb, cubed

1 tbsp Coriander Seeds

1 tsp Cumin Seeds

2 tsp Mustard Seeds

5 Black Peppercorns

5 Cloves

5 Dried Red Chillies

1 Cinnamon Stick

1/2 tsp Cardamom Seeds

1/2 tsp Ground Tumeric

5 Garlic Cloves, chopped

1 inch Ginger Root, chopped

4 tbsp Wine Vinegar

5 tbsp Vegetable Oil

2 Onions, chopped

2 cups Canned Tomatoes

1 cupWater

Salt, to taste


Heat the frying pan over a medium heat and fry the whole spices until browned. Grind them to a fine powder. Stir in the turmeric and salt to taste.

Blend the powder with the garlic, ginger and 4 tbsp of wine vinegar to a smooth paste in a blender or food processor. Rub the paste into the meat and leave to marinate overnight.

Heat the oil in a heavy based pan and fry the onions over a medium heat until golden brown. Add the lamb and fry for 15 minutes until golden.

Stir in the tomatoes and fry until all the liquid has been absorbed and the oil appears on the surface.

Add the remaining wine vinegar and water, bring to the boil, cover and cook over a medium-low heat for 40 minutes until the meat is tender.
