The first thing that comes to my mind at the mention of the word Goa is the sandy beaches.I have never been there but seen that place in a lot of movies and have read about it too.So when Denny of Oh Taste and see announcedFlavors of Goa,an event started by Naina of Simply.food, I wanted to visit that place.Since it is not possible for the time being, I cooked a few Goanese dishes.
When I googled for Goanese dishes , I found this in Tarla Dala's site and I liked the way it was cooked with spices and all.More over it was in the microwave so easily done.
