Enjoy Delicacy Of Thai Recipes With Its Strong Spicy Flavors

Indian kitchen has a wide selection of recipes taken from the different corners of the country. One such place is the tiny state of Goa which is on the western coast. Its main food is seafood, fish, coconut in varied ways and rice. Geographically placed on a tropical warm climate it is naturally blessed with spices which are used liberally in Goan recipes.

Along with this the Portuguese settlers in Goa added to the local cuisine. Kokum a local fruit is commonly used in place of tamarind here. Being a coastal place no Goan food is considered complete without fish. As Goa is an international tourist hot-spot, one also finds several outside touches in the food here. The Portuguese brought potato, tomato and pineapples to Goa which was not adopted by the local population for quite some time. Another influence of the Portuguese on the local food was the chilies which have today become an essential part of Goan recipes.

India is has several rivers flowing through it those are a rich source of fish. Therefore fish is quite a popular part of Indian food, especially in the coastal states. Fish curry is not just a part of Goan cuisine, but is common to all parts of the country. Fish recipes are relished by most and one often looks for the taste of one’s own region. One can find not only Indian recipes but also Thai Fish recipes, northern fish fry as well as south Indian fish recipes here.

This also makes it a healthier option among all types of non vegetarian food. However it is better to have it grilled, poached, baked or steamed rather than deep fried. These recipes are quite simple to follow.

Thai food is uniquely different from Indian food yet there are lovers of Thai recipes who greatly relish them. Fish and fish sauce form an integral part of Thai recipes.
