Authentic Goan Food
More than 400 years under the Portuguese rule, even our cuisine was influenced by it. We pop something in our mouth without so much as thinking twice about it, with only our taste buds taking control of our thoughts that moment.
Dishes such as ‘racheiado’, ‘caldeirada’ and ‘cabidela’ reflect the legacy of the states colonial heritage. Caldeirada is a mildly flavoured offering in which fish or prawns are cooked in a kind of stew with vegetables, and often flavoured with wine. Racheiado is a delicious preparation in which usually a mackerel or pomfret, is slit down the center and stuffed with spicy red sauce, after which it is cooked normally.
