Us Asians can’t resist a bit of spice in our food and culturally we have been brought up in homes where spice is one of the main ingredients in most of our meals.

We’ve come up with our top spicy dishes we love at BritAsia HQ!

Chicken Vindaloo

This classic dish is known for its fiery taste and is one of the spiciest curries served at most curry houses. The Vindaloo originates from Goa, India and is slowly becoming the most popular curry outside of India.

Chicken Vindaloo

The Vindaloo is typically served with pork however some serve the dish with chicken or lamb. We don’t have a preference here at BritAsia TV and we recommend eating the dish the next day as the meat has time to marinate properly, which gives the Vindaloo a much better taste.

We also recommend using Spice Drops as an alternative to using fresh spices. The spice drops are much easier to use and each bottle is equipped with a dropper that allows easy, accurate dispense so there is no need to grind, grate or chop up the equivalent raw ingredients. This is definitely a time saver!

Thanks to our friends at Nandos, we can decide how spicy we want our peri peri marinade to be so those who don’t like spice can still enjoy the peri peri deliciousness!
