Author Notes

A classic Goan curry made ever so easy with Masala Mama’s amazing Vindaloo Simmer sauce, which is tart and spicy and has a long finish. Pork becomes fork tender, juicy and succulent when cooked in the oven. Traditionally had with Goan pao, a delicious bread roll made, made with palm toddy instead of yeast. “For a long time, Goans would wake up to the call of the poder, bringing fresh-out-of-the-oven poee, pao and other local breads to their doorsteps.” —MasalaMama
