For the uninitiated, the term vindaloo is derived from Portuguese dish carne de vinha d'alhos, which translates to 'meat in wine and garlic'. A traditional vindaloo recipe includes pork, marinated in red wine and garlic, which later got Indianised and replaced wine with palm vinegar and added red chilli for extra zing. Over the years, vindaloo also witnessed several variations where pork is replaced with mutton, duck, chicken, tofu et al.
However, the Veranda restaurant further simplified the pork vindaloo recipe and made it feasible for all to replicate in their kitchen.
