Vindaloo-who? Vindaloo, it's a spicy Indian curry dish. One of our favorites!
We've been in Colorado for almost a week now and I we figured we'd make dinner for once! We know that we all love spicy food, so this seemed appropriate. And it's cold, so that's another excuse to make this crazy-fantastic Indian dish.
Here's what you need:
3 tablespoons vinegar
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 tbs. fresh ginger OR 3/4 tbs. ground ginger...fresh tastes better though!
3/4 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground hot pepper...I always use more than this. We love spicy food!
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cup tomato sauce
1 cinnamon stick
1 small onion, chopped
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
Blend the first 9 ingredients in a blender.
Place blended mixture into the crock pot, add tomato sauce, cinnamon stick and onion and stir.
Add chicken and turn to coat.
Cook on low for 5 hours... If your crock pot is older, it may take 5 1/2 - 6 hrs. Also, if you're cooking at high altitudes, like we were in Colorado, it will probably take less time.
Serve with fresh cilantro or parsley on top, if you like!
Serve with pre-made Naan. You can buy this yummy Indian flat bread at most grocery stores. Runs about $3. SO GOOD!
We seriously eat this about once every 10 days or so. It's ultra easy...even tastier, and very healthy...only about 250 cals/serving.
Thank you, India!
