CUT the meat into four cm cubes. In a large non-metallic bowl, mix the meat and the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least two days. Heat the ghee or oil in a kadai or wok. Stir-fry the garlic and the spices for a minute. Add the onions and continue to stir-fry for about eight minutes.

Combine the fried ingredients and the pork along with the marinade in a 2¾ litre casserole and place in an oven preheated to 190 C/375 F/Gas 5.

Add a little water after 20 minutes, if required. Repeat 20 to 25 minutes later, adding the remaining ingredients. Cook for a further 20 to 25 minutes or until the pork is completely tender.

NOTES : Vindaloo is the benchmark of Goan food. Although it is made here with pork, duck works equally well Converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
