Let’s talk delicious heat! Goa, the west Indian tropical state, once a Portuguese colony, has a cuisine reflecting both traditions. Vindaloos, from the Portuguese words for wine (“vin”) and garlic (“aloo”), are hot & sour curries which use wine vinegar as the souring agent. For many the world over, they are the pinnacle of Indian Tropical cooking. This Vindaloo spice has loads of heat from two different chilies, but is smoothed and enhanced by 11 other spices to provide a great fiery base for memorable culinary creations.
