Author Notes

Vindaloo is an Asian curry dish from the region of Goa and Kerala . It is popular globally in its Anglo-Indian form as a staple of curry house menus, often renowned as a particularly spicy dish, though it is not necessarily always the hottest available. The name Vindaloo is derived from the Portuguese dish "Carne de Vinha d' Alhos", which is a dish of meat, usually pork —pauljoseph

Yes, this was easy! I realized that I should have checked in a cookbook I have to find kuskus. I recently bought an Indian cookbook by Ragavan Iyer. With that and your help I think I'll do well! Thanks!

Thsi sounds delicious and I am saving this to make soon. Is kuskus the tiny semolina grain we call couscous, or is it a spice? thanks!
