1. Pork Vindaloo
The state of Goa has not only given us good life but also this amazing dish. The Portuguese influence in this area has led to a heavy use of vinegar in this meat of pork. It is served with either chicken or lamb with a mix of potatoes. In Goa, where this dish originally originated, it is made in a dry sauce dish with the use of vinegar, garlic, pork fat, Kashmiri chilli and jagegry. It is recommended to consume it the next day of preparation. It goes well with both rice and Indian breads.
2. Malabar Parotta & Beef fry
Though it is a specialty of Kerala, it is famous all over south India. Parotta is a multi-layered flat bread inspired from â€œLaccha Parottaâ€ of the north while the Beef fry is not a fry as the name suggests but a spicy dry roasted form of beef.
