  1. Re: Pork Vindaloo

    Some questions:
    1. Under “Ingredients” what’s “3 cloves chopped” ? Lavang? You mean pounded roughly? Cloves are already v small so I was wondering how to chop them? Pounding would be easier…

    2. Under lMethod”: Marinate the pork. For how long? 1 hour? 2 hours? or overnight in the Freezer?

    3. Are Goan Toddy Vinegar & Palm Vinegar two different types? So far I’ve only heard of “Goa Vinegar”

    Grateful if you would clarify.
    Thank you!


    • Hi Joan,

      Thank you so much for your comments. I have updated the recipe indicating
      1. 6 garlic cloves chopped. The cloves need to be whole. My mistake 🙂
      2. Marintion time of about 30 mins
      3. The vinegar is either Gujarat sugarcane or Goa toddy vinegar. Had put in palm vinegar by mistake.

      Your feedback has been very valuable to me, new blogger that I am. Would welcome feedback on any other discrepancies you may find on the site.

      Thanks once again
