Vindaloo is the hot curry. The basic component of a vindaloo is the vindaloo paste, the paste is the mixture of hot spices and vinegar, cooked in oil for low heat. I made this chicken curry and brown rice for dinner. I was very happy my hubby liked it so much. The chicken breasts make it very soft and melt it your mouth. It's so easy to make too.
Chicken - 2 breast pieces
Dry red chillies - 4-5
Tomato - 1
Onion - 1 medium
