Mushroom Vindaloo by Shreya Gazmer
Vindaloo has to be one of the best gifts given by the Portugese to Goa’s Catholic community. A traditional Indian dish from the west coast of India gets a veganised version in this recipe. This flavourful spicy vinegar-based curry infused with spices is jam packed with umami and deliciously aromatic. Best served with steamed rice or paratha.

Ingredients (2 people):
  • 190 gm chopped oyster mushroom
  • 1 medium pureed onion
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp ginger garlic paste
  • ½ tsp whole black pepper

  • 1 ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 medium cinnamon stick
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • Chopped coriander for garnish
  • 1 tsp sugar

  • Salt to taste
  1. Start the recipe by dry roasting these ingredients in a pan – dry red chillies, cumin seeds, whole black pepper, cinnamon stick and cloves
  2. Put all the whole roasted spices into a blender with a little bit of water. Blend them into a coarse paste
  3. Heat oil in a pan till it’s hot. Add the ginger garlic paste, pureed onion and turmeric. Saute them for 2 mins
