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:
6 Kasmiri Chillies knock of the seeds if necessary
1/2 a Ground Coconut
3 Garlic Flakes
½ Teaspoon Cumin seeds
2 Teaspoons Coriander seeds
4 – 5 Pepper corns
½ Teaspoon Haldi powder
A ball of tamarind
1 Slit Green Chilly
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.
Great dish but I also think you have missed on the ginger which is not on the ingredients list..:)

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.

hi,l tried this and it turned out great. i find that lightly frying the ingreaditents for the blend masala enhances the flavour before blending
Thanks a lot for this recipe. I am gonna try it today.
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.
Hi – can I add pomfret to this?
