Vindaloo Seasoning

NM   |   June 2019

Vindaloo [Vin-duh-loooo!]  It’s fun to pronounce but it’s more fun to taste.  Vindaloo Seasoning is a staple ingredient in authentic Indian Cuisine, don’t let the seasoning’s sweet aroma fool you.  At Southern Style Spices, Vindaloo Seasoning is known as a hot, intense, and powerful flavor.  Sprinkle it over chicken, beef, pastes, sauces, and vegetable dishes.  Blended with fresh pepper, it also contains Cumin, Turmeric, Cinnamon, and other unique spices this seasoning will be a hit at any dinner party.

Spice Talk Tip:

Use Vindaloo Seasoning on shish kabobs with meat and veggies, then throw on the grill for perfection.


  1. Toast the Vindaloo Seasoning in a dutch oven or large pot over medium-low heat until the Vindaloo Seasoning is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir the Vindaloo Seasoning constantly as it toasts, taking care that it does not burn. Stir in the olive oil, onion, garlic and ginger. Increase heat to medium, and cook until the ingredients soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in tomato paste until no lumps of paste remain. Add the chicken, potatoes, tomatoes, chicken broth, wine vinegar, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Remove the cover and cook 5 minutes more to slightly thicken. To make it extra spicy, add more Vindaloo Seasoning. Serve over rice.
