Usually we make this Vindaloo ( the name derives from the Portuguese dish "Carne de Vinha d' Alhos".’’ The popularity of the dish inspired the song "Vindaloo", the unofficial anthem of the England football team for the 1998 FIFA World Cup and it was prominently mentioned in the 1978 punk rock song, I Just Want to Have Something To Do, by American punk rock group the Ramones.’’), when we are in holiday with my wife’s estate bungalow where there are lot of fresh spices and my mother in low have a very small scale pig farming.
