Malvani cuisine is widespread in the South Konkan region of India, which covers the territory of Goa and Maharashtra. Despite this, the Malvani dishes slightly differ from the traditional South Indian ones.
First, coconut is commonly used to make milk, paste; it is grilled and even dried. Secondly, in most of the masalas (spices) you may find dried red chili pepper, which gives the Malvani dishes rather spicy notes.
For those who wants to get acquainted with these dishes, Indian restaurant “Talk of the Town” recommends to try "Konkani Fish Curry": a pike perch, cooked in a spicy tomato and coconut sauce according to the best traditions of the Konkani region!
