  2. 2-3 tablespoons butter
  3. 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Vindaloo Masala Ingredients:
  6. 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
  7. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  8. 2 small sized onions finely chopped
  9. 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  10. 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  11. 2 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
  12. 1/2 cup tomato puree

  14. 1 and 1/2 teaspoon vindaloo masala
  15. 3 tablespoon oil
  16. Handful of coriander leaves finely chopped to garnish

  1. Wash the chicken and marinate it with turmeric powder and salt. Keep this aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Take a pan, heat butter in it, then instantly put in the chicken. Saute this and cook for 8-10 minutes. Once it is cooked, keep aside.
  3. In a separate pan, put in the cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds and lightly roast it. Then let it cool down and grind them together to form your vindaloo masala.
  4. Next, heat the oil in a kadhai/pan. Once the oil is hot, add in the onions, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, tomato puree, ginger garlic paste, chicken, vindaloo masala, tamarind water, salt to taste, together and give it a good stir.
  5. Combine these ingredients well and let cook for 4-5 minutes or till the onions are soft. Add a little water so that a thick gravy is formed for the curry.
  6. Serve hot with a garnish of coriander leaves alongside freshly steamed rice.
