VH sauce soup and stew

I got a chance to taste and make meals with tandoori and vindaloo VH sauce. We loved the taste, both children and adults will enjoy.
It is easy and takes less time to prepare meals using these sauces, which is very useful during busy schedules :)
All ingredients in the sauce are vegetarian. Many varieties of Asian inspired sauces available to make different types of meals. There are many possibilities on how to use this sauce, check out how I have used.

This tandoori sauce gives a delicious sweet smoky flavour. Following the instruction on the bottle, I combined the sauce with yogurt and marinated the chicken. The detailed recipe and what I made is coming up soon.

The VH vindaloo sauce is a delicious combination with meats or vegetables stir fry, curries and soups. I made this quick soup for supper and served it with bread.

Carrot potato soup

1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp onion
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp ginger grated
1/2 cup carrots cubed
1/2 cup potatoes cubed
4 to 5 tbsp vindaloo sauce
1/4 tsp salt to taste
1 1/2 cups water

Heat oil and sauté the onion, garlic and ginger. Then sauté the carrots and potatoes. Add water and VH vindaloo sauce and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes. This soup can be pureed in a blender or mash the vegetables with a spoon to desired texture. Reheat if needed and serve it hot topped with cream.

I made this tasty stew with the VH vindaloo sauce. It is easy to prepare, the sauce gives a beautiful colour and taste; no other spices were used just the sauce.

Meat and pepper stew

2 tbsp oil
1 1/2 cups meat cubed
1/4 cup onion
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp ginger grated
1/2 cup tomato chopped
8 tbsp VH vindaloo sauce
1/4 tsp salt to taste if needed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup red pepper cut into cubes

Heat oil and sauté the meat. Then add onion, garlic, ginger and tomatoes. Add vindaloo sauce and water. Pressure cook for about 10 minutes for the meat to cook. Add the red pepper after the meat is cooked and let it cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the stew hot with rice, flatbread or bread.

  1. What a wonderful series of recipe ideas....and perfect for this time of year too!

  2. Though I have seen the vindaloo sauce before, never attempted to buy and try out. But certainly the stew you made with it looks great, thick and creamy at the same think must been flavorful.

  3. Excellent review..pulling me to buy vindaloo sauce..and i like ur both recipes.Must try your carrot potato soup.

  4. I love vindaloo sauce but have not attempted to make it at home. Stew is perfect for rainy season like now. Everything look delicious!

  5. Oh soup - be still my heart - wonderful! Love the idea of using some premade sauce to speed up the process on busy days.

  6. The last thing I ate on my trip to France YEARS ago was carrot soup...I've been searching for a recipe that reminds me of what it was. This looks a thicker that what I remember, but who knows...maybe this is IT!

  7. Nice soup. Such a good idea to add the spicy sauce :)
