Word of the Week: Vindaloo

Vindaloo is a noun and is defined as a curried dish of Indian origin made with meat or shellfish, garlic, and wine or vinegar. Introduced by Portuguese explorers in the early-1400’s, vindaloo became a popular dish in the India region of Goa. This dish was based on the popular Portuguese dish carne de vinho e alhos or meat with wine and garlic, and the word vindaloo comes from the mispronunciation of the Portuguese words vinho e alhos. During the 1800’s, the dish became popular in Britain and is now a common dish worldwide.
