About this activity
Goa is perpetually on everyone’s bucket list, may it be Indians or travellers from other countries and people who flock to Goa believe the place is nothing short of a paradise. Panaji (also known as Panjim) is the capital of Goa. The houses, churches and the general ambience of the place echoes with Portuguese influence - extremely picturesque. While visiting Panaji, an afternoon with home-chef Sandhya should definitely be part of your itinerary.
When it comes to venturing into Goan cuisine, seafood evidently prevails. While there are the Portuguese inspired flavours, there is the local community of Goa called the Hindu Goans or the Goan Saraswats, whose cuisine is different from the colonial influence and depicts another side - the rustic side - of Goa.
Hindu Goan cuisine also predominantly consumes fish but the cooking techniques and use of ingredients is quite different from their Portuguese counterparts. Get know interesting facts about Goa and its cuisine and culture from Sandhya.
