Egg Vindaloo


This is a delicious egg curry that I know I’ll be making again and again! Vindaloo has a touch of vinegar which I love. Here is a bit of history about the dish.

A lot of times I try and eliminate extra steps, for example, if a spice is added in two different ways skip one way. This time I decided to follow the recipe, layering the flavors. It came out super tasty!
