Chicken Vindaloo

This is a goan chicken dish called chicken vindaloo.
If you are fed up with ordinary chicken preparations, it is a very good option to try out. First I thought,the red color of the dish is due to adding by some color,but after the dish was prepared; I was suprised by the color and texture of the curry. It was so good in taste too. Vinegar and spices are the specialities of chicken vindaloo. If u don't like to add vinegar,replace it with lemon juice.This dish will create hot and tangy taste in your taste buds.
Actually this recipe is derived from a few recipes that I came across internet.

The recipe follows:

Cuminseeds - 2 tsp

Tomato sauce- 8oz can
Large yellow onions - 2,thinly sliced

1) Heat 1/2 cup oil in a pan and fry the onions till dark brown. Remove onions and grind to a smooth paste with water. Don't undercook the onions. Mix it with the ground spices,vinegar and sugar. Set it aside.
2) Heat remaining oil and add ginger-garlicpaste. Saute until lightly brown. Add powders and stir.Add chicken and brown little.
