Good morning Lovelies,
Hope you are enjoying the weekend as much as I am.
We went exploring this morning in search of a virgin Beach in Goa. Had to travel quite a few kilometers but was worth it. The drive was super scenic and when we reached there…it just brought a smile on our face. The beach is called Ashwem Beach.
We then hailed back towards Baga and Callingut Beaches for some shopping!! all smiles!:):)
Goa is known for its cashews.. has the best quality. So if you ever visit Goa. .. you should grab a few to take back home for family and friends.
You get a lot of variety in cashews here. – plain cashews
– fried and salted –> my favorite
– salt and pepper –> again very tasty
– red chilies
– sweet and sour flavor
And the list is endless. . But these are a few main ones.
Here’s a quick tip for all my friends out there who are fond of Indian curries…If you love Indian curries for their thick gravy in vegetables. ..here’s how to have that in your home cooked food as well:):) just grind a few plain cashews and add the paste to the curry…it enhances the flavour and thickness in the curry. Though I wouldnt suggest that for calorie conscious people 😉
Did some accessory shopping as well:) though didn’t get much since very few shops were open.. considering this is off peak season in Goa:( got very nice hair bun sticks
I am really fond of silver jewellery and manged to get the below 2 pendant sets from a Tibetian shop on Baga beach. Goa has these very good Tibetian jewellery shops in Condilum Beach but they were shut this time around:(
Finally we proceded for dinner to Grand Hyatt. One of the good hotels but very much in the interiors of Goa. Has good view of the beach. Since it was night, was not able to capture a lot of the hotel but a few art pieces and chandeliers caught my attention so sharing those with you.
So that was a hectic day! Phew..
Have a wonderful day ahead guys.. this is me signing off for now.
