Let’s try making this popular street food from Goa today for lunch, what’s say?
Think Goa. Think beaches and a whole lot of seafood. On most days in Goa, you’d find your feet filled with sand because obviously, you can’t miss out a day in this region without heading out to the beach. Grabbing a bite here and there while soaking in the sun and glistening waters is how a day looks like in Goa. Nightlife is quite a treat too for the night owls who like to party hard. However, it is these small bites that you nibble during the day that make Goa so special. You wouldn’t have to go far away to some posh restaurant to look for authentic food.
There are plenty of shacks on the beach and small eateries and street food carts which offer the Goan flavours in a donna. Ros omlette is one of them. A typical Goan would be familiar with the delicious taste and enticing aroma of ros omlette being prepared in the vicinity. A special egg preparation, the omlette is served on a bed of thick gravy that adds to the uniqueness of the dish. It is usually eaten with pao or what they call the Goan poi (bread). This reminds us of another heavenly street treat that is a must-have in Goa. While the fascination of Goans for paos is no stranger to us, all thanks to the Portuguese, there’s this really interesting dish called the Goan cutlet pao that everyone swears by.
Crispy, fried chicken is sandwiched between a pao with some sauces and vegetables and is commonly found on the streets of Goa. Do you want to bring this classic street fare to your home? Well, we’ve got an amazing recipe by homechef Shrishti Prabhudesai who’s actually from Goa.
