Chorizos- The King of Sausages

Pork sausage is one of the traditional food items of the Goan cuisine. It is mostly loved by the Catholic community of Goa.

Pork sausage is basically a boneless pork meat that is seasoned with the required spices and is marinated with vinegar. This mixture is then kept in an earthen vessel over a period of two days. This process allows all the spices and the vinegar to blend properly with the raw meat. The filling is then stuffed into casings which are made up of a layer of intestines of beef meat.

They can be eaten boiled, fried, as pork chops and as a pie filling in sandwiches. The most common dish that is prepared by using the sausages is the ‘Choris pao’; bread stuffed with sausages.

Pork sausages are easily available in New Margao Municipal market, near the old Margao Municipal building and the Mapusa Market.
