Now we move on to goan special curries. Goan Curries make special space in every back packer’s heart. Goan people are very picky about curry. Great combination of Portuguese food with magic of Indian spices. Now I am going to introduce some of them.
A spicy marinade made from a paste of chilies. Garlic and fresh coriander. Used for the famous chicken cafreal and other goan dishes
A spicy and creamy curry made of aromatic roasted spices and grated coconut
A bland of whole rosted spices, kasmiri chillies. Coconut and vinegar . Used as stuffing and as base for many popular Goan dishes.
Smooth creamy gravy made from coconut milk, red chillies, garlic cumin and tamarind for tangy finish.
A Portuguese influenced spicy and tangy fish curry. The word “ Ambot” means sour and “Tik” means spicy.
I know craving start in your mind so Here some of dishes that I had in Goa. Pleasure tastes of these curries made me time travel to Portuguese time.
Xacuti is very common in Goa you can found it in every restaurant or beach side shelter but one of my Goanies Friend suggested me Hotel Souza Labo at Calangute beach. This hotel is running since 1932. You can enjoy beach view with having authentic Goan food here. Smooth coconut curry blend with spices and it is perfectly cooked with crap. The ambience and its authentic food will make you feel mesmerize and send you back in time.
