Balchão, tandoori: two takes on shrimp by a Goan-born chef. Goa, a Portuguese colony until 1961 and India's smallest state by area, is also represented on the menu by a handful of coconutty curries. The most famous of those curries, however, contains no coconut, and, although its name derives the Portuguese words for wine (vinho) and garlic (alho), disdains those ingredients as well. Its name: vindaloo.
