The Distinguished Konkani Cuisine Of India

Who doesn’t like food. Everybody is a foodie here. In this world, we have all the food and in India, you will get all the country’s food. In every corner, in every restaurant you will find all kinds of food. Whether it is North Indian food, South Indian, Italian, Chinese, etc. all kinds of food is available in India. It is rightly said by “Irish Proverb” that “Laughter is brightest where food is best.” So why travel the world when you have everything in India.

In India itself you will find different varieties of food like North Indian, South Indian, Konkani food, Malvani, Mogalai, Hyderbadi, Goan, etc etc etc.. The list is never ending. How can I forget “Maharashtrian” Food. But the one which I want to specify is about “Konkani” food.

I personally found this food very unique, very interesting and sometimes shocking too. Because you will never imagine certain food in the gravy form. Have you seen Jackfruit (Kadgi Gashi) gravy? Have you seen mango (Sasav) gravy? All this Gravy food, people have it with rice. Rice is the staple food in Konkani. It is rightly said by “Paul Prudhomme” that “You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.” Trust me Guys, These foods taste awesome.

In the history of cuisines, Konkani Cuisine is one the most delicious cuisines you could come across in India. Konkani food traditionally and  historically tends to have a lot of seafood in addition to Indian based seasonings. The use of coconut in food is also popular, giving Konkani cuisine a characteristic taste. There are many famous konkani foods like shark (Mori Masala) curry that are popular along the Konkan coast. Solkadhi is an appetizer made from coconut milk and kokam. It is usually served with kombdi vade (Chicken Gravy), fish and mutton Malvani. Bangda fry (Mackerel fish) is a popular dish, especially in Mumbai. In India, Mumbai is the best place where you will get all kinds of and all varieties of food.

It is rightly said by “Julia Child” that “People who love to eat are always the best people”. If you have the right company then you will enjoy not only this konkani food but all other varieties of food too. “Cesar Chavez” said, “If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… The people who give you their food give you their heart.”

And last but not the least,”Virginia Woolf” said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if he has not dined well.” So, do taste the konkani food, Do let us know the restaurant name and place where you have found excellent food.

Eat well.. Sleep well.. May god’s child don’t sleep hungry tonight.
