Goa has a range of delicious and refreshing foods that are perfect for the hot summer months. From Sol Kadhi to Goan Fish Curry, there is something for everyone to enjoy. A typical Goan lunch offers a range of delicious and refreshing food that is perfect for beating the heat. And Chef Martins’s typical meal at home is exactly that!

The first dish that Chef shows us is the Goan King Fish Head Curry. The tender and succulent King Fish head is the star ingredient of this dish in a spicy and tangy mango curry. The combination of the tangy curry with the tender and succulent fish head makes it a true delicacy.

Next up was the Clams Dry Masala dish which is a traditional seafood dish. Its unique flavour profile makes it a true representation of the coastal state’s culinary traditions and cultural heritage. Then, the chef prepared a dish with Bhindi or ladyfinger. It really looked well with the spices making way for a delicious and satisfying flavour. Moreover, there were also giant crabs cooked with lemon butter, salad, pickles, king fish fried and stuffed mango with spices as a side dish.

The whole lunch menu looked delicious and authentic which showed how a typical summer lunch is prepared in a Goan household.
