“A recipe based on one found in a Penzeys Spices catalog. I purchased some salt free Vindaloo seasoning from Penzey’s to go with our new low-sodium diet and because I couldn’t find any Vindaloo seasoning at any local grocers. Note: add the optional cayenne pepper for a fiery hot Vindaloo as served in beach front restaurants in India.”
