  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup loosely packed, chopped flat-leaf parsley

1. Wash the lentils and soak them for 2 hours in tepid water; drain.

2. In a deep pot, add 8 cups of water to the lentils, bring to a boil, cover, and cook on low heat for 20 to 25 minutes. Rinse the lentils with cold water and drain. Make sure the lentils are cooked but firm, not mushy.

Goa – Special

Published June 3, 2011 by crazyphoenix

The best thing about the cuisine of Goa is that the traditional style of cooking is alive still today. The tourists in Goa can take tours of the adjoining rural areas to see the locals cooking food in clay pots on firewood. They do not consider the modern cooking conveniences that much. They favour the traditional preparation because it gives an additional smoky flavour to the dish of Goa. This shows that the Goans enjoy not only what they eat, but also in the way they cook it.

Like the land itself, the cuisine of Goa, has many flavors and tastes having the rich treasure trove of cookery delicacies. Its origin can be traced for a long time in past. The cooking is influenced greatly from the historical events, such as the invasion of Portuguese people. Portuguese rule has left a deep-seated influence on the innovative style of Goa’s cooking. This has led to an exotic mix of delicious and spicy cuisine. It is influenced from the two of the other main religions of India, Christianity and Hinduism. This perfect blend of different cooking styles and inspirations is what places the food of Goa among the best cuisines of India.

In the normal daily Goan meal, seafood holds an important place. From Galhina Piri-Piri, Pork Vindaloo, prawns stuffed Papad, fried fish and the exotic concoctions of ambot-tik, Goan cuisine is truly irresistible. Goan cuisine is proficient to satisfy even the most choosy and foodie appetites.

Take a culinary journey in some of the most exotic Goan specialties on your holiday tour to Goa.
