vindaloo curry


This is one of those amazing curries with BANG! of flavour. It has all the amazing flavours with a good amount of heat from the chill powder and spices. If you like it really hot, just increase the amount of fresh chilli – but be careful, too much can be very hot! This recipe is originally from the Fast and Easy Indian Cooking thermomix book. An amazing addition to your thermomix library.

    Sounds easy enough with the thermomix! I’ve never made curry from scratch here… It’s just too easy and affordable to find good curry all over Singapore :p

    Oh yum! I don’t have a thermomix, but I’m still keen to try this out in my food processor or the like! I love Indian food. Definitely need to get there one day!

  • Annie @ Go Camping Australia

    I am going to admit it. I really don’t understand what a Thermomix is all about. I keep hearing about people loving them or going to Thermomix parties, but I don’t get what they are!!! Are the food processors, ovens or what? People say I made Spag Bog and a dessert in my machine, and I am thinking “gross” and “how” all at the same time!

      Annie it is like a food processor/blender/ soup maker/ cooker/ ice cream maker all in one. From chopping to cooking… it literally does do everything from a bolognese to an ice-cream in the bowl. Not at the same time though! But a bolognese takes about 20 minutes to make and ice cream 2 seconds. Not cheap…! But an incredible investment if you can afford it. You can then get rid of about 2 or 3 items in your kitchen!

      Look it up. And the support is amazing! Did I do a good sale job :) x

    Bookmarked! I have never ever made my own curry powder.. but I have the Thermie and now some inspiration.

      Seana it is sooooo easy! You must try! x

  • Danya Banya

    Oh yum!!! We are theromo-less, but it sounds fantastic. :)

    50 GRAMS OF MEAT?? Most recipes state 750 to 900 grams. This seems like a misprint.

    • the parenting files – tahlia

      Your right… Misprint.. 50 grams is not much :) Should be 500

  • Kirsten Nauendorf

    You didn’t mention when to use the vinegar or diced tomato. You also didn’t state what temp to cook it on for the 20 minutes?

  • Speedy

    and apart from the vinegar, temperature details lacking, what about when to add the quartered tomatoes? terrible post, especially as you are ripping it off somebody else’s cookbook!

  • Tahlia

    Last step …. I cook at 100 degrees. All my recipes are an amalgamation of other recipes put together as my own. Thanks for your comments Speedy :)

  • Sally S

    So what temp is the meat cooked in and when does the apple cider vinegar and quartered tomatoes get added
