Rice is a staple ingredient in Sindhudurg hence mostly all dishes revolves around Rice. To top this every area has small local restaurants which serve healthy homemade meal. If you love junk this place isn’t for you guys :p
Ghavane and Usal:- A classic dish made in every house. Ghavane is basically crepe dosa or neer dosa. Served with usal or coconut chutney. If you have a local friend or local known restaurant they will serve nice thick or medium thick chutney, many of them add water to increase the proportion. Green Peas, Beans, Kulith, Black Vatane, and Mixed Vegetables(Kurma).
Dhondhas or KhasKhasa:- It is a classic sweet dish which takes a lot of time but worth giving a try. Khaskhasa consists of Cucumber, Rawa, Sugar, and Groundnuts and many different ingredients. Please let me know if you want a detailed recipe for this one.The cucumber is big and called “Tawsaa”
