Beef Vindaloo


  • Beef – 1 kg
  • Oil – 4-5 TBSP
  • Onion – 2 (big)
  • Ginger garlic paste – 2 TBSP
  • Kashmiri/Mild Chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Coriander Powder – 3 TBSP
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Vinegar – 1 TBSP
  • Water – ¾ cup
  • Potato – 2 Medium (boiled and cubed)

To Roast and Grind

  • Fennel Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
  • Pepper – 4 tsp
  • Cinnamon – 2-3 pieces
  • Cloves – 2-3 pieces
  • Cardamom – 3-4 pieces


(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml, Vary the amount of chilli as per your spice level)



Method: (With step-by-step pics)

Wash beef well and cut it into small pieces. Heat a pan and dry roast the ingredients under roast and grind. Allow it to cool down and grind into a powder. Heat oil in a pan and add sliced onion and curry leaves


Saute onion until its light brown in color (Cover and cook and mix in between, helps to become brown fast)


Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for a minute or two. Add grinded spice powder and all other spice powders, salt and sauté for a minute or two


Add beef pieces and vinegar


Mix well so that masala gets coated evenly on beef pieces


Transfer everything to a pressure cooker. Add water and pressure cook beef until its cooked well. (I go for 3-4 whistles and then switch off the stove. Wait for the steam to drop completely and open the cooker)


Beef is cooked well


Add the boiled and cubed potato and mix well. Bring the curry to boil. Do a taste test at also.


Cook in low-medium flame for another 6-8 mins and switch off the stove. Serve and enjoy!!!!
