Egg Vindaloo – Spicy Egg Curry

Egg Vindaloo – Spicy Egg Curry: Extremely popular fusion egg curry recipe from Goa (India) using eggs, spices and tomato curry. Pairs well with bread/naan or rice.


It is also known as one of the hottest curry available because of the use of peppercorns and chilies.

And today, I get to make it using the Vindaloo curry powder made by “Spicely Organicsan organic spice company in San Francisco which sells spices, tea, and chocolates.

I was approached by them a few months back and was sent their “SpiceBox  Gift Set” to try (My next post will be a detailed review of their product).

What is Egg Vindaloo?

Now, Vindaloo from our Egg Vindaloo is derived from a Portuguese recipe for meat (pork/rabbit) cooked with wine and garlic.

But in India, the recipe was changed to meat with spices, vinegar, and sugar (replacing wine).

How is the Egg Vindaloo Paste Made?

The Vindaloo curry paste is prepared by slow roasting different spices like:

  • Peppercorns
  • Cloves
  • Cumin
  • Coriander
  • Nutmeg
  • Cinnamon
  • Chilies

And then powdered to a fine consistency. Non-meat eaters usually make it with potatoes or eggs.

Here’s the recipe for you’ll to try and you can make it spicier or milder depending on your choice by adding more or less of the curry powder.

Vindaloo Seasoning (Powder)


I hope you try this Egg Vindaloo – Spicy Egg Curry soon and you can serve it with rice or any kind of grain or bread.
