Summary An Evening at Leiths: Flavours of Goa with Emma Ryan


  • Wed 11 Oct 2023   18.45 - 21.15

Although Goa is one of the most popular holiday destinations, the cuisine of this paradise and smallest state of India is virtually unknown to the rest of the world. The cuisine has a strong Portuguese influence, bearing almost no resemblance to that of the rest of India. The result is a vibrant mix of European ingredients with Indian cooking techniques, and inspiration from Brazil, China, Malaysia, Africa, France and the Middle East.

In this class you will learn a selection of impressive Goan dishes, including a classic Goan curry made with fresh coconut and spices, as well as how to make a simple and delicious semolina fried fish, which no Goan meal is complete without. You will also learn how to master Cabbage Foogath, a Portuguese Serradura pudding and a sol kadi digestif.

The Menu:

  • Prawn and Okra Curry - a medium spiced coconut-based curry made with tiger or king prawns
  • Rava Fried Fish - this is a piece of white fish marinated in Goan spices and vinegar and coated in semolina before shallow frying
  • Cabbage Foogath - a vegetable side dish of braised cabbage, fresh coconut and spices


  • Serradura - a Portuguese dessert also known as sawdust pudding, which consists of layers of crushed Marie biscuits and whipped/condensed milk and topped with seasonal fruit.
  • Sol Kadi - a refreshing digestif made of kokum plant

Menu subject to change.
