Trader Joe's Lamb Vindaloo Review

Trader Joe's Lamb Vindaloo Review

I'm not sure whether I spend more money on Trader Joe's treats or in the frozen section. It's a toss-up, for sure. Also, when I purchase frozen meals, I'm always curious as to what they REALLY look like, as packages can be deceiving. Keep reading for a photo of the cooked dish.  


Today's review is of Trader Joe's Lamb Vindaloo. It's one of many Indian dishes that TJ's has to offer in the store's frozen section. Interestingly, the name vindaloo comes from a mispronunciation of a Portuguese dish. You can read more about the history of vindaloo on Saveur

REVIEW (Bridget): Out of alllllll of the items I've purchased from Trader Joe's, their Lamb Vindaloo is definitely in my all-time Top 5. I always keep a few of these stocked in my freezer and probably eat at least one per week. The lamb is exquisitely tender. The sauce is rich and spicy without being hot. The basmati rice is well-seasoned and the perfect amount alongside the lamb and sauce. I typically serve it with a side of sliced cucumber...or if I'm really feeling fancy, some naan.

Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

You are not wrong it is absolutely delish - I have it with a couple of chips 🤣 I’m an English woman living in the USA that grew up on Indian food, it’s good.

I finally tried this. It was SOOO spicy that I had to throw it in the garbage. I like spicy foods, but this was over the top. Sorry.

I have been eating Indian food all my life and though the flavor is good this one is bit too “ hot”
