Goa has developed its own cuisine and vindaloo is one of its main

Two important features of vindaloo are the technique of marinating meat in
vinegar and the use of fiery spices. Although I have reduced the number of
chiles, 4 more may be added if a hotter dish is desired. Cornish hens may
be substituted for duck. Soak chiles in vinegar for 15 minutes. Add garlic
and ginger and blend into a puree. Scrape mixture into a small bowl. Add
cumin, coriander and cinnamon and mix thoroughly. Coat duck pieces well
with spice paste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add duck pieces and
brown on all sides. Add salt, water, sugar and any remaining spice puree.

Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until duck is
tender, about 1 hour. Skim off all fat. Transfer duck to a heated platter,
pour sauce over, and garnish with minced cilantro.
