    In Mangalore and Goa,and so do migrants from these places, where they settled, pork meat dishes are familiar, Pork meat curry, bafaat, indaad(indaloo), laithao are some the ive dishes. Taste wise bafaat dish became popular, when the time passed, people started keeping the powder ready, and started sending it to their relatives those who were away from their homes.Gradually Bafaat powder's demand grown up now having the great demand and use for the various dishes and attracts many for it's typical flavor.
