Madras not hot enough for you? Then why not try this fiery Chicken Vindaloo Recipe?
Chicken Vindaloo Recipe
This recipe happens to be my favourite “from scratch” Chicken Vindaloo Recipe! It’s one that I stumbled upon in an old recipe book that was loaned to my wife by a friend some time ago.
In fact I cannot remember whose (if anyone in particular) this recipe started life as, but over time, I’ve fiddled and changed a few ingredients and quantities and come up with what I think is the hottest and best Chicken Vindaloo Recipe.
Chicken Vindaloo Origins
The Vindaloo itself, originated in the Indian region of Goa and it is derived from a Portuguese dish known as “Vinha De Alhos” which translates as “wine and garlic”. The Portuguese dish was effectively a wine and garlic based stew which was typically made with Pork and served around Christmas time. However, after the dish was introduced to India, it changed rapidly to what we now know as the Vindaloo with the introduction of chillies and different Goan spices. Continue reading →
Chicken Tikka Masala is the UK’s favourite curry, but is it worthy of such an accolade?
Each weekend, literally thousands of people up and down the country would say it is, which is why they cook it at home, or order it from their local restaurant or takeaway, but does this pretender deserve so much kudos?
Some would say that it isn’t a real curry especially when you bear in mind it’s somewhat disputed originsand admittedly, I have been somewhat snobbish about the humble Chicken Tikka Masala in the past, but it seems to me that there are more and more “versions” of this popular curry being introduced with slight twists or interesting differences.
Chicken Tikka Masala - Should this be our favourite?
That being the case, I think we are probably now at the time where we curry-snobs should start to take the humble CTM (as I’ve noticed some restaurants like to call it) a bit more seriously and of late I’ve been experimenting with various different flavours and styles of Chicken Tikka Masala in my hunt for the best Chicken Tikka Masala recipe, in much the same way as I did with the Currytastic Chicken Madras recipe.
So, over the coming weeks I will be trying different Chicken Tikka Masala recipes, as well as some different restaurant and take away versions and will report back with my findings – I hope you all appreciate the lengths I go to for you, my readers and the love of my art 🙂

This is my favourite Chicken Madras recipe – And believe me, I should know as I’ve pretty much tried all of them…But time and time again, this recipe is the one I keep going back to.
Loosely based on a Gordan Ramsey recipe, over the many years I’ve been making it, it’s has been “tweaked” and “tuned” into what is most probably the most liked Chicken Madras Recipe online Don’t believe me? Check out the comments section below…
Pizza Hut spicy beef pizza topping. Hmmm, nom nom nom.
I do like Pizza Hut pizzas, but is it me or has anyone else noticed that spicy beef isn’t actually in any way spicy other than they may have added some salt and pepper? That being the case, should it not be called Seasoned Beef instead? Continue reading →
Chicken Tikka Masala is apparently the UK’s favourite curry. That’s as maybe, but it’s not one of mine. I prefer the Chicken Tikka Chilli Masala as served by the excellent Cinnamon Lounge in Ripponden. Notice the difference? You will when you eat it!
