Although interesting trivia: the word "vindaloo" comes from Portuguese "vinho alho", literally meaning "wine & garlic". Something Portuguese showed them in order to trade wine for stuff like silk and spices.
Over time the Indian dish evolved, wine got replaced by vinegar for economic reasons, combined with the fact that Indians like to make stuff insanely spicy.
