Egg Vindaloo

Vindaloo is a very delicious curry recipe from the region of Goa. The name "vindaloo" is derived from the Portuguese dish "carne de vinha d'alhos", which is a dish of meat, usually pork, with wine and garlic. The Portuguese dish was modified by the substitution of vinegar (usually palm vinegar) for the red wine and the addition of red Kashmiri chilies with additional spices to evolve into vindaloo. Alternative terms are vindalho or vindallo. Nowadays, the Anglo-Indian version of a vindaloo is marinated in vinegar, sugar, fresh ginger and spices overnight and then cooked with the addition of further spices. The end result has a "sweet sour" taste which is quite different from that adapted by UK restaurants. I use egg instead of meat to make this egg vindaloo dish and it comes out exceptionally well. Hope you will like it too.
