Goa in Monsoons

By now you all know how much I love my hometown Goa. This post is for all the travelers who wants to visit Goa in monsoons.

So, Goa is a very well known tourist attraction on the west coast of India, especially known for its beaches.

People love celebrating Christmas and the new year in Goa for obvious reasons. It hosts the International Film Festival of India just before Christmas and then the new year follows. All in all, Goa has become a perfect destination to spend your year end at. Having said that, Monsoon/Rainy season in Goa can be enjoyed too. Yes I mean it. The nature, the greenery, seeing the beaches when it rains, the clouds and then the street food is something you can’t get enough off.

Let me quickly share some pictures of my trip this time during Eid to my hometown Goa.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

Patoleo made at my aunts place, Patoleo or turmeric leaf cake is a dish mostly prepared in the western coast of India. It is made of grated coconut, rice and jaggery, and cooked by wrapping and steaming in turmeric leaves.

When it rains, all you can think about is of some Biryani, and this one is prawn special biryani made by my Sister-In-law. Ready to serve

Hog Plums 🙂 They are more like mangoes and tastes yum when cooked with jaggery & coconut in thick gravy

 

and now some pictures I clicked on Eid, I am sorry for the poor presentation,

Henna/ Mehendi for Eid

 

So, our Eid day started by preparing Sheerkhurma (Its a sweet dish which is made with vermicelli in milk and lots of dry fruits).

Lunch menu was: Chicken Biryani, Chicken Tandoori, Mutton gravy, Bread and salad.

Pistachios and chocolates for the guests

 

Dates, just before leaving for Eid Prayers it is important to have dates.

 

And as you have seen this pics now, I feel they are enough to give you an idea on how Goa looks in monsoon. If you have ever visited Goa in monsoon do share your experience in comments below. If you haven’t still then this is the right time for your travel.

So? What are you waiting for? Infact July-August-September is the best time to witness some amazing Goan stuff like local mushrooms and organic fruits/vegetables along with sightseeing beautiful nature, peaceful beaches (yes you won’t be able to dive in the sea because of high tides in rainy season, but there are still better things that are waiting for you).

Hope you like reading my post.

  1. We are planning next vacay…. And Goa is the first one on the list! It seems interesting even during monsoons. We are targeting first week of October. How is the climate then?

      Yes dear it’s mesmerising in monsoons, in fact I personally love Goa in monsoons.
      Talking about October, it starts just after the monsoon season ends in Goa, which means that although it rains occasionally, still you might experience some rainfall during this month, it isn’t as intense as it is in the month of July, August and September. December is also a good time you can even think about December.

  3. Wow! What a great find this blog is! i am visiting Goa this august and I was looking for some beach clicks. But then you have food. And food is better. The best in fact. Any day! 🙂 Loved the post.
    I envy the fact you have family at a beautiful place like Goa. The Patileo thing is similar to what we make in West Bengal, just that we replace the tamarind leaves with Shal or Piyal tree. That is a homemade sweet dish too.
    Do check out my blog when you have time! much love and cheers.

      For patoleo we use turmeric leaves, I didn’t know that people in West Bengal also have it, looks like it is made all over India but the names are different and leaves used are different🤗
