This Goan version is hot, but the flavours of dried aromatic spices such as roasted black cardamon, kashmiri chillies and pepper with tangy vinegar & tamarind create a delightful, fiery and aromatic curry.

Vindaloo Curry Recipe


You’ll need:

1 pouch of Pestle Vindaloo Paste

500g pork/beef, fish or vegetables

250ml water


Cooking instructions:

1. Add paste and water to pan and bring to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes before adding meat, fish or vegetables

2. Loosely cover and cook until tender (pork/beef – 60 minutes & fish and veg for 20 minutes)

3. Remove cover and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes to thicken sauce


Useful tips: Brown meat before adding to curry. Stir frequently and add water if sauce thickens too quickly.


Alternative uses: Use paste as a marinade for meat or paneer. Marinade for no more than 2 hours as vinegar can toughen meat.
