Just to eat something not indigenous to Portugal was enough of a change for us, so we settled down to our favorite Indian curry selections. This photo depicts a Lamb Vindaloo, which was exceedingly spicy, more so than what we are typically served at home. Because the Portuguese have such a longstanding relationship with Indian food, the cooks here evidently do not need to temper their recipes for European tastes.
Lamb Korma is difficult to find fault with anywhere, however, the best I have tasted was in Amsterdam. Shalimar's interpretation was more than adequate and I was grateful to eat what has easily become a comfort food for me.
Our only disappointment was in the steamed rice. It was plain, with nothing to flavor it, not even one cardamom seed, nothing.
