Which Dry Red Chillies and Vinegar is Better for Pork Vindaloo.
I have mostly used Dry Kashmiri Red Chillies in my cooking, unless some specific chillies are needed. If Kashmiri Red Chillies are not available others available in the market can be used. If the market does not have any type of dry red chillies then the red chilli powder or Caynenne Powder can be used.
Coconut Vinegar is another ingredient used by me in this recipe. Even if this vinegar is not available any vinegar like cider vinegar can be utilized.
