Off the Goan coast

The various influences have made the Goan cuisine an interesting blend of tastes as a result of which it has a phenomenal repertoire of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies.


Here are some of them that should enjoy amidst the sun, sand and sea.

Prawn Cutlet - A universal favourite amongst the locals in Goa right from the kids to the oldies. Small pieces of prawns mixed with boiled and mashed potatoes and spices and fried. Grest snack with a glass of chilled beer.

Mashli Gashi - Coconut oil lends its special flavour to this fish delicacy cooked in coconut milk and spices. A classic coastal fish curry which has its share of very ardent admirers

Chicken Xacuti - A spicy chicken preparation in tangy coconut gravy, speciality of Viva la de Goa. This dish is one of those local Goan dishes that has made a mark far beyond its humble origins.

Goan Chilli Pickle This spicy vinegary green chilli pickle is likely accompaniment to most traditional Goan meals as its perfect combination of flavours can lift even the dullest of food.

Tender Coconut and Cashewnut Sukke -  Simply delicious is this combination of tender coconut and cashewnuts cooked in coconut milk with other spices. It is a great balance of flavours and textures and celebrates two very special vegetarian ingredients from the area.

Rice Chapatti - Rice and coconut ground together, shaped into chapattis and roasted. Soft and melt in the mouth they taste great with any kind of curry – mutton, chicken fish or even vegetable.

Dodol - A delicious rice and coconut dessert, a must at special occasions in Goa.
Bibinca: a famous dessert prepared in Goa. This multilayered Goan cake takes ample of time for preparation, but the outcome of patience is amazingly sweet.
