Make the Vindaloo paste by combining the ingredients in a blender, and set aside.

To the Meatball mix, add 4 tablespoons of the Vindaloo paste.

Cook the meatballs until medium rare (5 – 7 minutes), and save the juices from the pan.

In a large pot saute the vegetables in coconut oil and EV olive oil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Then add the meatballs and juice, and simmer for 3 more minutes.

Now add the paste, coconut milk, and water to the pot, and let simmer on low heat for 30 – 60 minutes depending on the thickness desired. Season with salt and pepper.


You could do this vegan by using marinated tofu instead of meatballs 

  • Serve with wild brown rice, or by itself with a lovely green salad.
  • You can change up the vegetables to what you have in season.
  • Use lamb chunks, or beef, or chicken, or fish … it’s your palate to satisfy.
  • Number of Chilies to your HEAT level.
