Rains bring curry.

It’s mushroom time for Goa. Locally known as 'Alami' or 'Olami', they are a hot favorite. These wild mushrooms buds are found in Goa only into the mid monsoons. They need to be handpicked and found usually in the forests. And we do wait eagerly for them. They need to be eaten before they bloom. Delicious Xacuti or fried accompaniments is what becomes of them. Lip smacking.
