A Mangalorean Christmas

December 28, 2006

Celebrated Christmas 2006 with family in Mangalore – in true Mangalorean style – midnight mass, lots and lots of food, wine, music and boisterous family gatherings. The weather in Mangalore was awesome – pleasant, not too hot or humid.

What did I eat on Christmas day?

Kusvar (Konkani word for Christmas sweets and savories) – which includes everything from rose cookies, kal kals, neuvrios (fried snack with coconut stuffing), rice marbles, fruit cakes (my favourite is the banana cake), thukdis.

Food – prawn pulao, beef chilli, sannas (of course), pork curry, chicken curry and cucumber salad.

Drink – Sula wine (the shiraz) and Goan port wine (delicious).

A lovely X’mas indeed!
