Goan Green Ideas, Tips and Serving Suggestions

This flavoursome curry originates from Goa in the South of India, a region famous for its love of coconut and fresh herbs, where it would traditionally be served with fish or pork. The Goan Green has a thin sauce which soaks into your ingredients, filling them with fresh and zingy goodness. The perfect light dish for a warmer Spring evening.

Try it with:

  • Chicken thighs or even full chicken drumsticks. Add these raw and let them cook in the sauce.
  • Pork shoulder with whole baby onions tossed in at the end.
  • Snapper and purple broccoli or asparagus.
  • Monkfish tails, or large pieces of another firm white fish, with crunchy sugar snap peas.
  • Large king prawns, mussels and squid rings for a seafood delight.
  • Cauliflower, green beans, and chunks of spring onion for a veggie spring meal.

Top Tips:

  • Add a freshly grated or matchsticks of ginger to give the sauce extra warmth and depth.
  • Don’t skimp on the lime juice - this dish should be tangy!
  • For a slightly thicker sauce, add less water, or reduce the sauce by cooking with the lid off
