What is Chicken Vindaloo? Is Vindaloo authentic Indian?
The story goes that in the 15th century the Portuguese sailors carried pork to sustain them on their long journey to Goa – now a state on the western coast of India. To preserve the pork, it was pickled in garlic and wine (that had turned vinegary over time because of the long distance). The word vindaloo is derived from the Portuguese word ‘carne de vinha d’alhos’ which means meat in a marinade of wine (vinho) and garlic (alho).
Over a period of time, the locals in Goa gave this dish an Indian touch by introducing onions, tomatoes, palm vinegar, and spices to this dish to create what we know call Vindaloo or Vindalho. While vindaloo is traditionally made with pork, other meats such as lamb or chicken have become popular replacements so that Muslims and meat-eating Hindus could enjoy as well.
