Goa's 450 years under Portuguese domination produced a unique, syncretic blend of East and West that is at once exotic and strangely familiar. The various influences have made the Goan cuisine an interesting blend of tastes as a result of which it has a phenomenal repertoire of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies. Goan Fish Curry or Konkani Fish Curry is not very much spicy like Chettinad Fish curry and has its own taste which deserves to be tasted few times in between.
