This is the national dish of Brazil, so what is it doing here? Well, thanks to the colonization of Goa by the Portuguese—who introduced not only chiles and tomatoes to India, but also the Portuguese way of cooking with pork, vinegar, and spices—this classic dish of beans and pork is now omnipresent among the Christian Goan community. Serve it as they do, with their soft bread called pao (a soft yeast-leavened bread similar to White Castle’s square hamburger buns)—yum!
