Vindaloo was traditionally associated with pork meat, although it is now possible to make its gravy with chicken, mutton, fish, and vegetarian variations as well. This dish has juicy and delicious pieces of chicken dipped in a spicy sauce that you would love to devour!

4. Goan Chicken Cutlet
The luscious, juicy meat/chicken combined with the rava fried bread is a ‘heaven in a bun.’ It’s a great evening snack when served with freshly grated veggies and spicy sauce.
