Grind cumin seeds, black pepper, cardamom seeds, cinnamon, black mustard

combine ground spices, vinegar, salt, cayenne pepper and brown sugar. Set

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Fry onions, stirring
frequently, until they are a rich, dark brown. Remove onions with a slotted
spoon and put them in a blender. Turn off the heat, but do not discard the
oil. Add about 3 T water (or more if necessary) to the onions and blend
until you have a smooth paste. Add this onion paste to the spices in the
bowl. This mixture is the vindaloo paste.

Put the ginger and garlic in a blender. Add about 3 T water and blend
until you have a smooth paste.

Heat the remaining oil in the saucepan over medium heat. When hot, add the
ginger, garlic paste. Stir until the paste browns slightly. Add the
coriander and turmeric. Stir a few seconds. Add the chicken, a little at a
time, and brown lightly.

Add the vindaloo paste, tomato sauce and potatoes to the chicken in the
saucepan. Stir and bring to a slight boil. Cover the saucepan, reduce heat
to low and simmer for about an hour, or until potatoes are tender. Serve
over rice.
