Despite being the smallest state in India, Goa has a long and storied culinary tradition. Goan cuisine was greatly influenced by Portuguese cuisine while it was formerly under Portuguese authority and had a significant part in its development. Today, we'll discuss a few of Goa's long-lost dishes, which many of us may or may not be familiar with but which, according to foodies everywhere, are simply delicious and must be tried at least once in one's lifetime. The three major subgroups of Goan cuisine are the Christian, Hindu, and Muslim subgroups. Important flavours such as sweetness, sourness, spice, and salt are the foundation of most cuisines. Let's read over them and let us know if we missed any. 

This appetiser, which is deep-fried and fashioned like a half-moon, is straight from Portuguese cuisine. These croquettes have a delicious, simple wheat dough that is filled with a creamy prawn filling. People in Goa enjoy eating it during the morning. 

Sukha Tisriyo 

Small, sweet-tasting clams known as tisriyo are customarily prepared with onions, garlic, freshly grated coconut, and Goan spices. This meal is truly excellent and is only available in a few select locations. Be sure not to miss it when you do! 

Moogagati Ani Purio

A dish made up of puris and a dal made of sprouted green gramme is one of the lost specialties of Goan cuisine. One of the dishes that was frequently prepared for significant events like marriages, Ekadashi, Nag Panchami, etc. was this one. The coconut gravy used to prepare this delicious dal is delicious. 

Pork Solantulem 

It's a dish made with slices of pork that are cooked with kokum, red chillies, onions, black pepper, ginger, and garlic. This meal has a slight acidity to it and is best served with Goan Poee, a tasty bread that resembles a bun. This dish is excellent and simple at the same time, and it must not be overlooked. 

Wheat Kheer 

Have you ever heard a kheer like that? That's because it's one of the defunct Goan recipes that no one currently prepares. The wheat used to make this kheer was hand-pounded into a coarse powder in a mortar and pestle after being soaked. This powder was then boiled in coconut milk, jaggery, and cashews after being roasted in ghee. 

Aad Maas

It is a famous dish made with pork meat and bones and is a traditional Goan recipe that everyone should be aware of. For a flavorful, hot, and spicy curry, the beef is marinated in a tangy, spicy marinade and afterwards slow-cooked in a crockpot. 

Tavsali

This is a cucumber-based steamed cake. Yellow cucumbers, which are widely available in Goa, were originally used in this vanished recipe. But nowadays, you can also obtain Tavsali made with normal cucumbers, which are dark green in colour. It is regarded as a nutritious cake that you may indulge in without feeling guilty because of the characteristics of the cucumber! 

Sevya Ros 

This is probably one of those recipes that you cannot find online because it requires a lot of labor to prepare. This delicious delicacy was traditionally prepared by soaking the rice for a day, allowing it to ferment overnight, and then using a mould to create thin strings that resembled noodles. After being steam-cooked, these rice noodles are then topped with a sauce made of melted jaggery and coconut milk.
