Avid food lover and passionate, Colin is a deep cook who sets out to serve tastes like traditional Goan food in the article.
What is unique about this?
Much like the Idli (the usual soft rice cake from South India), but a bit bigger with a strong amused taste, are the 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 the coconut palm).
Sometimes, due to the lack of toddy, sannas can also be made by adding yeast, and it’s faster.
|Preparation time||cooking time||Ready in||Yields|
8 hours 30 minutes
serves 4 people
- 1 cup of parboiled rice
- 1/2 cup grated coconut
- 1 1/2 cups coconut toddy or 1 1/2 tsp. Tablespoon of yeast
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- oil, for greasing
- salt to taste
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.
