I'm not a big fan of potatoes in my chicken vindaloo. That said, the rest of my family love them. Therefore, I offer you this smoky version of one of my favourite curries with the potato! Most of the ingredients can be found at Asian shops and nice supermarkets.
  • 4 chicken breast cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil or ghee
  • 3 onions sliced and diced
  • 3 tomatoes - diced
  • 6 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • 1" ginger - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon hot red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon CURRY GUY smoked curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon CURRY GUY smoked garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon CURRY GUY smoked cumin powder
  • 2 large potatoes - boiled until cooked through and then diced
  • 150ml tamarind water or vinegar
  • 4 fresh green chillies - finely chopped
  • CURRY GUY smoked spicy salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat the butter/olive oil in a large saucepan.
  2. Add the onions and fry for about ten minutes until the onions are translucent and lightly browned.
  3. Add the ginger and garlic followed by the tomatoes and allow to simmer for about ten minutes.
  4. Pour in the chicken and stir to combine.
  5. Add the tamarind water/vinegar, the fresh green chillies and all of the other spices.
  6. Add the potatoes and cover to simmer for about 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Check the curry regularly and add water if the sauce becomes too thick.
  7. Just before serving, sprinkle with the CURRY GUY spiced salt and black pepper.
