The lockdown in 2020 began quite optimistically with much social media chatter and several posts about Dalgona coffee and focaccia artwork. But as the weeks turned into months, people started turning to simple food to find comfort, borrowing kitchen practices from their mothers and grandmothers. However, now, due to the lockdown-like curbs in Maharashtra, many have temporarily moved to Goa. If you are missing your home meals, we have a place in mind for you that serves authentic East Indian food from Mumbai. A Malad girl, Keziah Correia living in Goa has launched an East Indian eatery called Fugiyas Cafe & Bar that offers sorpotel, vindaloo, and balchao like a pucca local.
