Vasco de Gama first landed in Goa in 1455 and turned this tiny state on the Konkan coast of India into a Portuguese colony. Famous for vindaloos and other spicy meat and seafood curries (including pork), Goa is also known for its breads and pastries. Maharashtra, an urban state also off the Konkan coast is famous for its spicy seafood stews and grains with a heavy use of peanuts and cashews. Mumbai, home to the thriving Bollywood industry, is located off the coast of Maharashtra and is home to the largest population of Parsis, the Zoroastrians refugees from Persia. Gujarat, the only state in India where vegetarianism is a way of life, is known for its delicate use of vegetables, lentils, and spices.
