Mushroom and Green Peas Vindaloo/ Mushroom Matar Vindaloo

Mushroom Matar Vindaloo

Mushroom and Green Peas/ Matar Vindaloo is very much similar to mushroom vindaloo. Normally potatoes goes really well with vindaloo curry. However I have added green peas to it. I have tried these vindaloo recipes and they taste so flavourful I just loved them. Its easy to prepare and have distinctive taste more of spicy and hotness of roasted whole spices.

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.

Well this is the beauty of cooking. One dish gets cooked authentically with fixed ingredients but you can make variations and make newer dish which are even better than the original dish. In Goa it’s authentically cooked with pork. However chicken, meat, beef are also cooked in vindaloo spice.

Okay But since we are vegetarians, lets focus on vegetarian version of this dish. This dish is more fiery and hot spicy dish. But you can adjust the amount of chilli. You can use paneer for this recipe, Paneer Vindaloo (in my to-do list, so expect for the recipe soon). In that case you have to marinate the paneer cubes in that spice mix for some time. Some more recipes in my to-do list are potato vindaloo, mix vegetable vindaloo, soya chunks vindaloo. Comment below if you have tried other vindaloo version so that I can get some inspiration to cook.

The process and spice used will be same. but different vegetables adds their own flavor to the dish.
