FAMOUS FOOD IN GOA

The cuisine of Goa is an extraordinary amalgamation of Portuguese and local sensibilities, mainly those of the Saraswat Hindus. The lengthy period of Portuguese rule, besides that of the Muslim and Hindu kingdoms, has left an ineradicable influence on the novel approach of Goan cooking and this has led to an interesting mix of tasty and spicy cuisine.

In true Portuguese-Goan tradition, the meat is soaked in different spices for at least a day or two before being cooked with a generous dose of homemade spices. The cuisine of Goa is responsible for introducing that quintessential Portuguese delicacy Chicken Cafreal (chicken marinated in a mildly spiced green coconut masala and fried) to the people world over.

A Goan values his food as much as he does his daily siesta (break). And in his daily meal, seafood always has a pride of place is some form or the other. From fried fish to exotic concoctions like ambot-tik, sea food is usually a must on the menu, except for the occasional break for some religious observance.

Monks were responsible for brewing and distilling distinctive-tasting fenis from the cashew fruit and the coconut palm, which form the base of cocktails of many kinds. Apart from food, if you are looking at exotic Goan cocktails, then they are also available in almost all the restaurants in Goa. The Catamaran, for example is a smooth blend of Vodka, Bacardi, pineapple Juice and lemonade that will go well with an Oriental meal. You could begin your oriental odyssey with Stuffed Crabs, which unlike their Goan counterparts are stuffed with Thai herbs, button mushrooms and carrot. Goenchins Chicken Taipei (chicken sautéed in hot green sauce) and Prawns Taipei (prawns sautéed in Szechwan sauce) are perfect accompaniments to complement your cocktail.

The cuisine in Goa has special treats stored for the vegetarians too. You will come across many restaurants in Goa, which serves unusual range of Hindu-Goan specialties. Try the Cashew Green Peas Bhaji (a tangy mixture of cashews, green peas, spices and fresh coconut), Sprouted Moong Ussal (bean sprouts with mustard seeds, green chillies and fresh coconut) and the Alsandachem Tonakh (kidney beans with a spicy Xacuti gravy). You can also try out the range of desserts, but the Tender Coconut Soufflé and Bebinca (a traditional seven-layered coconut and jaggery dessert) will simply capture your taste buds.
