The human being is a stroke of genius, a brilliant idea of a Creator, but he has left certain parts in its brain, which make the human able to make choices, and they may be good or bad. The Creator will not interfere, but this may lead to consequences, the human race may find difficult to get out of. At those times, the Creator has intervened, by sending Great Minds, to show the way, but human being for what he is, will choose and sometimes, ignore and then the Creator has to take the second alternative. Destruction of his work. Start all over again, from a fresh stock. Just look at the past, all those forgotten empires, monuments of greatness, all gone. Why are we so blind. Here we have a group of people, from all walks of life, so lovingly sharing their good discoveries, all giving tribute to this Creator, who made the Tongue, the Taste Buds, The Flavor, The spices, and a Digestive System. Thank him, for making us, and let us continue sharing and making this a better world, being true mentors to the ones who are given to us to take care of, our children and their children. This country can show that it is possible to be united in diversity.

This website makes an attempt to offer you recipes primarily from Mangalore, who originally migrated from Goa. So we have very many similarities.
Our mothers and grand mothers perfected Mangalorean cooking. However, the memory of the taste of these foods they prepared is fast being forgotten with new trends in the food industry,
For those, who are enterprising and interested in trying a variety of dishes, and those who are longing for their home food, this site may prove useful.
Being a Catholic brought up in that milieu, I have absorbed many values, which I like to share with those with similar interests. I believe, the food is needed for the growth of the body, but there is also a spirit within us, which needs sustenance. I wish to share the unique gift of music, which I have dedicated to my Maker, and added it under the component: Catholic Church Music which can be freely used by our visitors, if they like it.
I have also included a Text Book to learn Music, and its script. One generally does not realize its importance, with the modern recording and play back tools that are available. But not all music is recorded, and the older music, is retained in the memory, and some have been good enough to write it in notation, which is the only way, to render music which is two dimensional, i.e. it is based on time and tonal pitch. The lyrics can be written in spoken languages, but the music can not be. That is why, through a process of trial and error, the script was developed over 8 centuries, and the greatest of music that has come from the human mind, is available only in this form.
Thus the whole reason of this website, is to share what we have with others. What we received from our ancestors, and which they gave us, because of their love for their children, we should also pass it on to the next generation. I hope this tradition of sharing will go on, as years roll by and old faces disappear from the scene.
I would appreciate any feedback so please feel free to email me. Also I would like it if you gave your comments about the recipes and music on this site. Most recipes and music pages allow you to post your comments. So if you've had a chance to try the recipes or listen to the music, I would love to hear from you.
