The traditional Portuguese dish is Bacalhau or cod that has been salted and dried to preserve it. It is so popular it could be called the national food of Portugal. Rumour has it that there are two bacalhau recipes for every day of the year - making a staggering 730 different recipes!

Preparation :

Bacalhau is not available in Goa, so if you have relatives abroad, ask them to add a few packs of it to their list of goodies for you when they come down. This is one of the more simpler recipes and is the recipe used at Longuinhos.

Soak the cod overnight in cold water. Drain the cod, put it in a saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring it to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer very gently for 15 minutes.

Drain, keep the cod aside and reserve the water. When cool, carefully remove all the bones and flake the cod.

Slice the onions, tomatoes and green peppers. Chop the garlic.

Cut potatoes into small cubes and parboil.

Heat olive oil in a pan, add onions and fry over a low heat till soft. Add garlic and fry for another minute. Add the tomatoes, green peppers and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the cod and stir gently. Mix in all the ingredients evenly and cook for a few minutes.
