Vindaloo is typically a Goan dish prepare using Fenni or Cooking wine. As I love to try innovative recepies ,I gave a innovative twist to the original recepie and prepared it in Kerala style.

Vindaloos are best to have with rice and rotis. A very spicy and thick gravy based dish that can be relished for lunch or dinner.
