Its very rare that traditional Goan recipes are found, the ones handed down from generation to generation secret family recipes that tell you exactly what needs to be put in the dish to make it perfect.
Goan food is known by anyone who has heard of Goa, the Sorpotel’s and the Fish Curry Rice’s fame has spread all over the world. But what if you feel like a bit of Goa and you are half way across the world? Just come to Goan Recipes and get ready to churn out some Goan Magic!
Our Goan recipes are derived from a cookbook handed over to me by my mother Yvette Oliveira Fernandes, who’s known by people in family circles, friends and people from across the world for the magic she churns out it the kitchen. Her delicious Marzipan has been sent all the way to Switzerland from here in Bombay.
She owes most of it to her mother Ophelia Lobo who at her ripe age of 90 years still spends 80% of her time in the Kitchen making Bibinca for anyone who gives her a little present, toddling on her walking stick.
Why am I Sharing these Recipes?
At this time and age, culture is fusing together with access to information from around the world. I have done my bit to provide the Goan culture and heritage, through a way anyone would love to experience it, by playing with your taste buds and make your stomach growl for more.
About Goan Food:
Goan cuisine consists of coconut milk, since Goa has quite a few, coconut trees. The cuisine is influenced by its Hindu origins, Portuguese colonialism, and modern techniques to churn out some delicious dishes full of spices and flavours of a vibrant culture.
