What Makes Goan Cuisine So Unique? What Is So Special About Goan Food?

According to an article on indianculture.gov.in, Goa’s colonial past left an incredible mark on its cuisine. The most significant cultural influence came from the Portuguese beginning in the 16th century CE. In 1510, the Portuguese general Albuquerque captured Goa from the Sultan of Bijapur. This resulted in the introduction of certain culinary items to the region such as potatoes, chilies, tomatoes, cashew, pineapple, bread, vinegar, and different kinds of meats.

But if you dive in deep, you will find variations in the food preparations of the Goan Hindu and Goan Christian communities. The dishes popular among the Hindu Goan community make wide use of tamarind and kokum to induce a sourish flavour. In contrast, the dishes of the Goan Christians make wide use of vinegar. Over time, the cuisine and culinary tradition were also “influenced by Konkani, British, Saraswat, and South Indian cuisines, apart from the Portuguese” reads the report on indianculture.gov.in.
