When I first tried it I was surprised at the unsavory quality of the lamb chunks. I’ve microwaved all of the Indian food products offered by Trader Joe’s but this didn’t pass muster. The lamb was chewy and fatty. I avoided it, preferring the Chicken and Paneer Tikka Masala.
As luck would have it, I accidentally bought it recently. The Aloo Chaat packaging has the same color and when I bought 2 packages, the Lamb Vindaloo was underneath. Well… it turned out to be a nice change of events. This time it was good! The lamb was tender, not chewy, and not fatty. Tasty! It’s a good vindaloo recipe as well, which is only medium spicy (vindaloo is reputedly VERY spicy in Indian culture). I will buy it again. 🙂

I just finished a package. Delicious! Can’t wait to purchase a few to have on had. I always replate frozen food on china. I had it along with mixed veggies, all prepared in the oven.

I’m English. We eat curries from birth. We know bad curries from the good and this TJs Vindaloo is not bad, it’s flipping restaurant quality mate! I typically eat these for brekkie or before the gym. On a hangover they are the bomb! Mix one of these bad boys with a few TJs Chicken Tikka Masala’s and you’ll never have to pay big bucks on Indian take out ever again. My only gripe is the portion size, too small 🙁

I crave this stuff! It’s quite good, with a very tasty sauce and a slow building heat. Often the lamb is a bit fatty, but for the price it can’t be beat.

I’m ADDICTED to Trader Joe’s Lamb Vindaloo!! I crave it. I usually eat it twice a week!!
Flavorful, perfect amount of spice, heat builds with a well developed flavor, and far better than any other frozen Indian food that includes lamb on the market!!
Sometimes there is a fatty piece, but hey it’s lamb, what do you expect! Definitely better than Vindaloo I’ve had in restaurants! Trader Joes scores yet again!
