Mutton Vindaloo Today's recipe is the hot and spicy Goan favorite, Vindaloo. It is lip-smacking delicious, spicy curry. Authentic Goan Vindaloo is made with pork, but you can also use beef or mutton. In today's recipe, I have used mutton. It is popular among Christians, and the  Anglo-Indian community.  Most Indian restaurants have Vindaloo on their menu. This curry is even popular outside India.

Ripe jack fruit has a firm texture and tastes like honey. It adds an exotic taste to desserts. The young or tender jack fruit is used for savory dishes and has a meaty texture. The unripe one has a neutral flavor, and we use it to make mashed jack fruit/puzhukku, and it tastes best with spicy fish curry.
