This chicken mince recipe uses a classic vindaloo masala. It is full of flavor and is perfect as a filling on hot dogs or simply as a side dish. It has a sweet, sour flavor and is quite spicy as it contains a handful of Indian spices
While pork vindaloo is often made for festive occasions or in sausages I love to use this masala during other times too. If you've never tried vindaloo masala with ground chicken or beef I highly recommend you do so as soon as possible. It is spicy, tangy, and absolutely delicious. I love to serve it with fresh homemade handbreads and some potato bhaji on the side.
Ingredients and substitutes
- Chicken - Today, I am using ground chicken but this is absolutely delicious with ground beef or chopped mutton and pork.
- Masala - a traditional vindaloo is a masala that has lots of chilies, cumin, and vinegar because it was meant to have a longer shelflife on the counter. This one has onions which means it won't keep for as long as the classic. So if you plan to keep this longer I suggest omitting the chopped onions.
- Garlic - this recipe usually has a good amount of fresh garlic cloves but you can reduce them if you prefer it less garlicky.
