Trader Joe’s Lamb Vindaloo – Food Review

Trader Joe, Lamb Vindaloo, Indian, spicy, food, frozen, reviewSeptember 4, 2016

The rice is nice, not as nutty as I like.  The sauce is awesome, like a golf foursome.  The heat is neat, but will sweat your feet.

The first taste starts as a nice multiflavored tomato based sauce which fools you into a sense of complacency while the heat starts to build in the mouth over the next minute to a level that will have most people calling the nearest fire department. The rice actually tastes better after a mouthful of high heat and helps somewhat to mediate the fire in the mouth.  However, it’s best to have a glass of ice water around to help put out the fire.  Phew!

    It is one of the best frozen entrees you can buy anywhere. The lamb is succulent and the sauce divine. I add an equal amount of cooked rice to get the right balance of curry to rice, Even better, if you are on a low carb diet, steam some riced cauliflower for the vindaloo and save the Basmati rice for something else. Disclosure:I am Indian.
