Goan Recheado Masala , the name itself, conjures up an image of spice and sophistication. It being a lazy rainy day I decided to cook Prawns in Recheado Masala to spice things up a bit. In Goa the prawns are pickled in the Recheado masala and kept for 2-3 months in the fridge.
Prawns in Recheado masala is a perfect cocktail starter since :
- It is quick to make
- Requires few ingredients
- Most of the preparation can be done a day earlier and therefore at the time of serving you do not have to cook for a long time
- Prawns can be cooked in large quantities
As I mentioned in my Fish Fry Post the Recheado Masala looks fiery, but the taste of chillies is subdued by the vinegar. I have a separate post on Goan Recheado Masala Here.
Along with any cocktail non-veg starter I prefer to serve green salad, so that there is enough fibre in the meal. Recently I discovered a Spiraliser and a Vegetable sharpner on Amazon, perfect for cutting vegetables into decorative shapes. They are not very expensive and there is no limit to the ways you can use them to decorate your Salad.
