Sorak is the simple curry known to be made during the monsoon season in Goa, the reasons were discussed in our earlier post on Samarachi Kodi.

Sorak Masala Ingredients:

other sorak ingredients

1 Slit Green Chilly
2-3 Kokam
1 Onion
1 Small tomato
1 Small Piece of Ginger

Chop the tomato, onions and ginger and put a pan with some oil on the fire.

Blend the masala ingredients, though the Kokam is in the picture, please note its not supposed to be ground.

Add a little water to help with the grinding

You can begin sauteing the onions.

When you see them gettin brown, add the tomatoes and stir a little.

Once your tomatoes and onions are sauted, you can add the masala .

Remember to stir fry the masala a little bit and then you can choose to add ether coconut milk or water.

Add a pinch of salt, slit one chilly, deseed if you don’t want the spice and add it to the curry.

Add the kokam to the sorak

Stir and bring to a boil, and your Sorak is ready.

As usual, best enjoyed piping hot with rice, dry fish would the accompaniment from the good old days.

Hi,
Just tried out your recipe and it turned out great. I have been enjoying this goan cuisine for sometime now, replicating most of your dishes. My mum is a goan too and she loves these dishes as they have turned out to be very authentic in taste and look. Thank you Clyde for these quick and easy delicious recipes. I hope many more people will enjoy the true taste of GOA.
All the very best.
Regards,
June.

This is a best site I ever found on net regarding goan food . The goanfoodrecipes.com really needs my salute. Keep up the good work. Some alterations are needed while preparing food . But other then that it’s simply perfect.
