Piggy Goan Day's (Part 2)


When we think of Goa , the first thing that comes to our mind are the Sea, Beautiful beaches, church and food.. in my earlier blog about Goa I shared about authentic local Goan Seafood thali ..in this blog im going to share the wonderful gems from the treasure trove of Goan Cuisine which is influenced by the Portuguese.

“Goan Pork Sorpotel”  “Pork Vindaloo”
Pork dishes are not easily available in our area, so all we use to do and still doing is hunting a “Wild Boar” in every Rainy season and preparing with our typical Black gravy Masala or else try “Bacon” in 5 star hotel which I never liked. I always wanted to have something different in pork and I knew Goa is the best place to have the same.

So one fine day I got transferred to goa.. thanks to the local property broker I got a beautiful flat near Miramar Beach opp. to famous club of goa “Clube Tennis De Gaspar Dias” (Amazing Food).
Next to my apartment there was a Bar called “Publix Bar”  Owned by my local catholic  friend  where I used to go almost daily to have a chilled beer after hectic work schedule. There I tried my 1st goan pork dish “Pork Vindaloo”

This dish represents a confluence of the indian and Portugese cuisines made with pork meat, vinegar and garlic.
Preparation was awesome soft, fatty pork meat cubes were marinated with local spices and vinegar for 24 hours.
The dish was neither a fiery hot or nor a curry, pork meat was tender, juicy and tangy due to vinegar,  all the flavors were meld together due to overnight marination.

Overall an awesome dish to try in Goa.



Few day later I’ve been invited by other local goan friend for dinner at his residence and there I tried “Pork Sorpotel” …man that was the best food I ever had.
Pork sorpotel was made with pork belly,liver and heart , all three are my favorite parts in any edible animal J
Dish was deep reddish brown colored due to red Kashmiri chillies and brown pork liver served with freshly steamed rice,
Dish was slightly sour due to toddy vinegar but yet spicy with thick gravy. Full of local goan masala and tangy tamrind.
pork meat was soft, fatty full of tasty spices , Liver was so soft and juicy was melting in my mouth….as I was taking a bite of that fatty meat, there was a burst of tasty flavors in my mouth …later I asked my friend about this he said that the Goans really believe in keeping the cooked dish aside for atleast a couple of days to allow the flavors to blend and penetrate into the meat and spices and vinegar act like a preservative …wow …just awesome.
Truly a fantastic rich flavored dish which makes your taste buds craves for more.

P.S- I’ve tried these dishes in local hotels but my experience was really bad ..so would suggest to try these dishes at any local catholic goans home… cheers

 And Lastly before i go i would like to thank you guys for reading my blog, if you like my blogs do  subscribe my blog  by entering your mail id at the bottom of this blog and for desktop users top right of this blog, also you Can ).If you have any tips or suggestion do let me know in comment section, would love to hear from you guys.

Fishy Goan Day's (Part 1)


Hello And whats Up People?
 “Panjim”, capital of “GOA”,one of the beautiful And most clean city of india . Maxed out with colonial architecture and unique Goan Cusine. Goan cuisine is a fusion of flavours from its Hindu and Portuguese heritage.
A day strated of with Goa’s most famous breakfast “Bhaji Pav”,  and that too at my favorite canteen at panjim Gymkahna, Campal opp. to my old office where I used to have breakfast and chai almost everyday.
This dish is also known as “Patol Bhaji” is prepared with dried white or green peas that are hydrated, boiled and cooked in a spicy watery gravy with potatoes. Relished with pao (bread)  and often accompanied with sukhi bhaji (potato bhaji).. I used word spicy but this dish is not spicy at all. (Most of the Goans dont like spicy food).
Afternoon I planned to have luch at“Anandashram”old panjim ,18th june road ,famous for Fish thali  very few tourists knows about this place, so mostly you will find local goans here and that’s the reason you will get awesome Goan fish thali with reasonable price, not like other tourist hotels that full of tourists and way highly priced. But before that I wanted to have a chilled beer but “Anandashram” dosent serve liquor so I went out to one of my favorite bar in panjim “Watson” opp. to municipal gardens panjim A beautiful place to relax ,Cool decor with nice rustic look.
So I ordered Beer with “Tisrya Sukka” (Dry Masala Clams) my all time favorite.
Clams dry is full of less spicy,tangy and little sweet goan masala and soft bonless meat inside, And on top of that it was soft,succulent and fresh as hell.
So I finshed my beer and went straight to “ Anandashram” (Remember in  most of the goan hotels they serve lunch till 3p.m. only and also fish thali is available in daytime for lunch only and not for dinner)
I ordered Spacial Fish thali , Thali was full of bright white freshly steamed rice, Chonak (Red snapper) rava fry, Surmai (King fish curry), prawns curry, fried kingfish, crab curry, coconut and dried baby shrimp salads and Solkadhi (Digestive Drink).
Red snapper was one of the tastiest fish I ever had…big flat chunk of fish friend with rava mixed with goan masala. Super crispy outside and soft,fresh,juicy inside .
King Fish curry was tangy, reddish, curry made up using tamarind ,coconut milk and goan masla was tastes awesome with fluffy steamed rice and some dry shrimps in it…man that was so delicious.

Then there was a crab curry  was made from grounded coconut, coriander and dry mixed roasted spices, which were added to crabs in it. One of the biggest headaches of this dish is to break the shell of crab but thanks to the owner who provided special instrument and spoons to break the shell.
Kingfish Fry …name says it all. Kingfish or surmai deep fried with goan recheado masala and rice flour .
Fish was crispy outside and too soft , juicy to the max with some chili powder and some tamarind flavors in it.
Prawns was made with same curry used for fish but curry was little creamy and fresh prawns in it.
There were some veggies also served in that dish but ive not tried.
Finaly I ended up drinking sour digestive called solkadhi wich is good for burping after having tummy full of fish and rice J

This restaurant  make one of the best Biryanis in this city.
And I came here in the afternoon  because this place actually sells out, so I ordered Butter Mutton seekh Kabas and  special Mutton Dum Biryani. The way Biryani is made in Solapur  it's really different than other places,
First they served Mutton seekh kabas, kababs was looking nice and Moist Full of green Masala In it.


That kabab was covered in spices and loads of butter was little bit crispy outside and juicy and tangy inside is one of the best seekh kababs I ever had with yogurt and Mint chutney. I would love come again to solapur   just for this Seekh kabab alone.

Then they served main course “Mutton Biryani”  this biryani actually has three layers ,top is covered with basmati rice With fried chopped onions and mint ,Middle is full of Local saoji masala (Essence of biryani) and then at the bottom is full of  Mutton.

Rice in biryani was so fluffy and aromatic mixed with tasty masala and mutton flavor in it. The flavor of mutton seemed changing evrytime when I chew it. Mutton was fatty, little crispy outside and nice juicy, moist and full of masla flavors inside.
Mutton was so moist and crispy that every time I was taking a bite it was melting in my mouth.they serve Mutton gravy And yogurt with onions in it  along with biryani and trust me  that adds heavenly flavoers in biryani.

That was An incredible feast for my tummy.

Spicy....Tasty.. "SOLAPUR" (Part-1)

Solapur Surrounded by "Telangana" and "Karnataka" is a city with multi-linguistic and multi-cultural features.Solapur has a mixture of Marathi, Kannada, Telgu, and Muslim peoples.
Food of Solapur is Influenced by this mixed culture and i must say this is one of the best Veg and Non-veg food destination of Maharashtra.
People say Solapuri food is very "Spicy" But its not true.


Best place to start your day in solapur with breakfast is at " Sudha Idali Gruha" There are loads of  hotels like "Kamaths" and other who serve south indian breakfast  but i will not recommend them. This place (Sudha) Is just awesome. Known for tasty and mouth watering Crispy "Dosas"  and "Wada's,"  "Idali"s" light as air and soft as cotton and off course unlimited tasty "Sambar and "Chutny" , in the end go for "Bread Maska " (Bread Butter) with "Masala chai, they daily prepare fresh butter  (Maska) as smooth as Silk not to miss at all.

Address:-Near Hotel Rajmahal, Saat Rasta, Solapur - 413001, Opposite Samaj Kalyan Kendra

Solapuri food is influenced by its mixed culture and you will find best and unique Non-Veg dishes here
Solapur is home to a large community of Savjis and you will find loads of "Savji Mutton" hotels around the city...but all are not as good as few i mentioned below. please note Nagpuri saoji and solapuri saoji both are different dishes, Napuri saoji is very (Too) Spicy where as solapuri is not at all that spicy.
First To start with

Shravan Saoji Hotel:-Address: 4-B, Sindagi Complex,Old Employment Chowk, Railway Lines, Solapur.. Opp. Kamath's

One of the oldest food joint of solapur situated in the heart of city known for their below mentioned dishesh
Khari Boti-
Lamb/goat meat cooked in loads of salt,turmeric,some onions and very less amount of spicy masala perfect for kids or people who prefer less spicy meat i bet you will not regret having one.














Green Mutton:
Lamb goat meat cooked  with Loads of coriander, Pudina  and local green masala... the unique dish of this hotel ..please note this is not regular green mutton which we get everywhere in india, its totally diffrent and far better










Mutton Lonache (Achari/pickle):-
Lots of people thinks that this is a side dish  made and preserved like pickle(Achar), no its not like that .

Its a main course dish freshly cooked in Masala which we use to make pickle, this masala gives that unique tangy and spicy taste to Mutton (Meat)
   













Park Savji:-
Address:-Shop No 1, Park Stadium Complex, Park Chowk Road, Muraraji Peth, Solapur 

This is also on of the best Saji mutton hotel famous foe below mentioned dishes

Saoji Mutton/Chicken Masala:-

This is the Spicy dish of solapur made of load of Saoji masla full of coconut with full on red curry... dish looks spicy but not that spicy as it looks.. so dont worry and enjoy :-)














Kheema Unde (Meat Balls)

This is also one of unique dish of solapur, Lamb/Goat minced meat Balls serve Dry or in curry mixed with local saoji masala










Khan Chacha:-
Address:-3/2, Hyderabad Road, National Highway 9, New Rangraj Nagar, Solapur
This Place is a perfect blend of Muslim and Marathi culture known for  below mentioned dishes 

Vazadi Fry (Goat Intestine curry/dry):-
Goat/lamb Intestine is used to prepare "Vazadi Fry" it taste really awesome but cleaning intestine takes time,This dish is all about how well you clean intestine, one small mistake while cleaning can spoil your entire dish and mood,thats the reason i recommend to have this dish at khan chacha only.










This Is the 1st part  of 2 parts of solapur food journey, in the next part  i'll be covering Unique Biryani joints and unknown "SEEK KABAB" walli gali... 

Do let me know your likes, dislikes about this part by commenting on this post. I would absolutely love to hear from you guys.

Thank You
