Ok. I know. Silence and this long absence. I blame it to work partly and a bit to my sickness. The sickness is because of this unpredictable, cold, gloomy weather here in Bangalore. Anyway, feeling slightly better and posting the pics from my recent trip to Goa. Yes, my taste buds have gone for a toss, and my cravings for spicy food has just shot up. Hence, this food post 😀
The Welcome Drink
This was an amazing juice I had. Apparently made of kokum, Garcinia indica, of berry family – very mildly spiced, with a hint of tang, and garnished with green chillies.
Veg Starter – The Babycorn Fritters
These were crisp babycorn fritters, which tasted heavenly.
Goan Prawn Curry
Like I said before, trying anything else other than sea food in Goa would have been a sin. So gorged on my favorite prawn curry. The prawns were fresh, succulent, and cooked to perfection with right blend of spices and condiments.
The Crunchy Salad
Stir Fried Prawns
I am not a hard-core non-vegetarian and eat very very selective kinds. Stick to mostly chicken and very limited types of fish – Just prawns, pomfret and rohu fish, so I never had the zest to try out the exotic ones, like lobster, crabs etc. and I was just happy with what I had.
The Pomfret Curry
I did taste the local rice which is unlike the fine grains of Basmati. Similar to parboiled rice. The curried fish sauce with the rice very well complemented each other.
Homemade Frozen Fruit Yoghurt Ice Cream
Am not too fond of the other Goan desserts, so just went ahead with this which was strongly suggested by the Chef there – it was not too bad.
I terribly want to eat some good food now – very spicy, hot and flavorsome. While I go and get it, do tell me if you liked this post? 🙂
