Mutton Vindaloo is my favorite childhood dish all I remember is steaming hot rice with ghee and vindaloo masala that mom used to mix for me. This recipe is a typical goan dish but some how its really famous in Bangalore...
If you want to purchase vindaloo masala then you must approach Street hawkers who sell mint and coriander in Bangalore (Shivajinagar, dharmaraja kovil street and ulsoor) they will give you the set of ingredients required to prepare vindaloo all we need to do is wash the meat and prepare the masala and cook it to perfection they will also give you the recipe if you want...this is something I've been seeing as a kid people flocking to Sunday market just to purchase this mixed bag of ingredients and to this day I still follow my dad to the market to purchase the masala...
