Pork belly tacos with a vindaloo curry sauce make a great spicy filling for a street style Indian-Mexican fusion soft taco.

My recipe of the day is for Vindaloo pork belly street tacos, for national Taco Day.

Vindaloo Pork  Belly Street Tacos

It's a bit of fusion cooking on my part, but makes perfect sense to me, as I adore cooking Indian style curries and just can't keep my hands off a good taco.

Pork Belly

I used fully cooked pork belly in this, which I had got at Kroger, but most stores should have that. When deciding what to do with the meat, I debated Asian style recipes as I like those as well. But I also had on hand the things I needed to make the tacos work, like street taco size torts plus the potatoes. And I always have the spices to make curry.

This also uses an Indian hot onion relish which I had posted elsewhere online (sorry haven't posted it here yet) and goes like this:

Hot Onion Relish Ingredients

You can work that out however you like on the amount of red pepper. I have been known to eat really spicy food. This you mix up and refrigerate for a bit. It tends to mellow, in my opinion. Don't confuse this relish with any other chutney or kachumber. It's pretty much just spicy minced onions that do a fresh pickle in the fridge.

But you don't necessarily need it in the recipe, as it does sub as a salsa. You could use kachumber (tomato salad) or some other chutney or skip it altogether.

The rest of the recipe is pretty straightforward, not really requiring too many spices. I do like buying the tamarind paste in a tube. That way you don't have to muck about with seeds. I hope you enjoy.

Happy National Taco Day!
