    A lovely, warming, spicy curry to enjoy in the colder months of the year. I serve this up over plain, boiled potatoes, or a rice pilaf.

      i used 2 1/3 lbs lamb, and followed directions to a t, then cooled and refrigerated for the next day. and i am so glad i did! there was a thick layer of fat atop which was easily removed, practically in 1 piece, and the flavor was concentrated,just so pungent and tasty. the lamb literally melted in our mouths. i served this over basmati rice, wonderful main course!

      Wow, this is so good. I've tried a lot of Indian recipes with mostly great results, but the vindaloos I've made never really turned out as great as I'd have hoped. This recipe is a real keeper though. I spread the cooking process out over three days: I marinated the beef the first day, cooked it on the second, and reheated it on the third. I ended up with a delicious curry that was more than worth the wait. Thanks for sharing!

      Absolutely delicious! Used beef, added the onions when sauteing. So flavorful - I had to halve the chilies, because I can't tolerate more (love them, but they hate me...) and still great. Sprinkled with cilantro for color and flavor. Serve on a pilaf of peas and brown rice.
