Food and music are central to the Goan self-image amd are part of the Goan soul. In the Goan household, mouth-watering aromas permeate the house. The smells are an exotic combination of spiced delicacies: saffron, garlic, chilies, tamarind, onions, coriander, cumin, and meat or fish or prawns or crustaceans or vegetables, cooked and tempered and sweetened with coconut. These aromas mix with the smell of cooking rice and draw one to the dining table. Goan cooking is not available in Indian restaurants. There are dishes on menus that are purportedly Goan (for example, Goan fish curry or Goan prawn curry or Goan Vindalho), capitalizing on the mystique created by the Western Tourist's rediscovery of Goa as a prime tourist spot. These dishes are a pale shadow of the real thing. Traditional Goan cooking is found today largely in Goan households. To sample this cuisine, the non=Goan has to cultivate the friendship of a Goan with a reputation for cooking skills. Or. take up cooking himself. This book is constructed to enable the non-Goan to prepare, in a user-friendly manner, this exquisite cuisine.
