Goan Cuisine

Goan cuisine is a historically woven combination of Arabian, Portuguese and native cultures, which is a unique blend of richness and simplicity. Goa is unique in India, because its mixture of East and West co-exists in a friendly and peaceful lifestyle. The best of both worlds has been absorbed and knit into a culture very distinctly different from that of the mainland India and it is reflected in its cuisine.

The staple food in Goa is fish, and the main ingredients are coconut milk, kashmiri chillies and vinegar.
