Mushroom Vindaloo is a vegetarian version of vindaloo dish. Authentic vindaloo recipe is made with pork and motton or chicken. You can make different vindaloo recipes such as paneer vindaloo, potato vindaloo, mix vegetable vindaloo.

If you will search for its history, you will get it from wikipedia. Just to brief, its originally a Portuguese dish where they use to marinate the meat in this spice and stored in wine for sailors. When modified to Indian version, wine got replaced with palm vinegar. Now this is a cuisine from Konkan (Goan curry). It has many more evolution in Indian version.

Okay let me tell you the basic difference of this particular dish. In this recipe, malt vinegar or coconut vinegar is used for marination. However if you are making paneer vindaloo, you will have to marinate the paneer in the vindaloo spice mix. But other vegetables, you can directly add to the curry. No need to marinate separately. This is an easy recipe and you may prepare the dish with in 30 minutes.

Potatoes goes very well with these vindaloo recipes. Here I have shallow fried potatoes and then added them to the curry.
