Posro is ‘the local village shop’ in Konkani, the lyrical language of that tiny, designer state on India’s west coast: Goa.
Besides stocking all the food and houseware villagers need, this local shop is also a social hive. Folks meet, greet, exchange daily news, swap recipes…the Posro is always abuzz!
Bygone days had every village self sufficient. Rice grew in backyard fields. Handmade oil, jaggery, vinegar, roof timber and thatch, came from the many coconut groves shading the village.
In wood-fired kitchens, loving hands ground curry pastes from ancient, secret recipes, spiced with homegrown chillies, magical forest herbs and mysterious condiments.
Everyone knew who made the best masalas, pickles, preserves and sweets in the village. When people reluctantly left for the cities to work, they carried along homemade bounty, for the months away. And visiting relatives regularly took them, the good stuff from back home.
Now, Posro brings these local treasures to you!
