Indian Cuisine – Traditional Goan Sannas

Avid food lover and passionate, Colin is a deep cook who sets out to serve tastes like traditional Goan food in article.

What is unique about this?

Much like Idli ( usual soft rice cake from South India), but a bit bigger with a strong amused taste, are Goan Sannas.
Being a delicious coastal Goan food, it tastes great especially with curries. A traditional cuisine typical of Goa, based on toddy (wine or palm juice, extracted from coconut palm).
Sometimes, due to lack of toddy, sannas can also be made by adding yeast, and it’s faster.

Wash the rice well and put it in a large dish / hollow container, and soak it overnight,
or at least for 5-6 hours. Then add a little water and the grated coconut to the rice, grind it together to make a smooth and thick paste.


Now in a cup of water add the yeast.
After 5 minutes, mix the prepared dough with the yeast (or toast).
Then add sugar and salt to the dough, also add a little water and mix well to make it smooth.

Now leave the dough / mixture, for 3-4 hours, so that the volume of the mixture increases.

Then, using oil, grease the cloth, place it on the small hollow molds of the steamer, filling it with half of the dough.

Let it steam for 10 to 12 minutes until it is cooked, to get the look of a soft rice cake.
