Konkan Katta

#AragmaPopupAtHome

Happy to kickstart our regional indian food journey via our home delivered pop-ups. Featuring this Friday, is food from Chiplun in Konkan, Maharashtra.

Like all other communities in India, for food, Konkanis mostly rely on what is grown in their backyards. So a typical Konkani home would have a big yard with vegetables and lots of coconut trees. It isn’t surprising then that coconut is the dominant flavour of food cooked in this region. Kokum is a fruit that is grown locally and is the primary souring agent. Fish forms the staple meat option. Barring festivals like Ganesh puja, holi, the community is mainly fish eating. 

This meal is cooked by our home chef Sangeeta Kadam. An engineer by education, Sangeeta is a part of the food industry purely out of her love for cooking and good food. What better than showcasing her home food. She hails from a small village called Sati near Chiplun. Sangeeta believes that only the best and freshest of ingredients make good food. She is very particular about the freshness of the fish and she uses Kokum sourced from her village in her curries. Even the dried shrimp used in the menu is sourced from her native village. She has chosen to highlight kadve val in her vegetarian meal option. She believes that they showcase the cuisine very well for vegetarians who otherwise can’t taste the fish delicacies. Kohala halwa is what she has grown up eating and is associated with her mothers cooking and her food memories as a kid.
