One of the joys of working from home is being able to tuck into leftovers from the night before without worrying about stinking out the office or causing workmates to drool whilst watching you demolish a tasty lunchtime treat when all they had to feast on was salad leaves or a dull sandwich! Today was one such day where I was pleased to be wfh.

So, I mentioned yesterday that the pork vindaloo was good but didn’t quite pack the flavour punch I was expecting, but cooking for an army as I usually do meant there were leftovers to be had this lunchtime.

I am pleased to report that a night sitting in the fridge did my vindaloo the world of good. It came out tasting an altogether different dish. So there we go folks, do try Anjum’s recipe at home but make it the day before you want to eat it!

Pork Vindaloo with Rice and Green BeansWe’ll be away from home this weekend so I ended my home-cooking week as I started it – with a curry from Anjum Anand’s I Love Curry. I chose the pork vindaloo, a hot Goan curry I enjoy cooking and eating at home but always steer clear of in a curry house!

An authentic vindaloo calls for plenty of hot Kashmiri chillies but the chilli does not overpower the other spices or the flavour of the pork. It’s a well balanced curry with a light sauce which truly hits the spot when you need a chilli fix.

Anjum’s recipe contains a lot more fragrant spices such as coriander, cardamon, cinnamon and ginger and requires a different preparation method to the recipe I normally use so I was intrigued to see how the dishes would differ. The result was, of course, delicious but the flavour was not as well rounded as my normal recipe – I have a feeling that this is one which will taste much better the next day when the flavours have really had time to develop. It’s a good job I made too much and can have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
