Cauliflower and Shrimps Recheado Recipe

12 Oct

Most of us eat cauliflower steamed or maybe grilled but this Cauliflower and Shrimps Recheado Recipe is a great way to enjoy a simple vegetable, fancy.

Recheado Masala is a very popular spice mix for seafood in Goa. It is made by grinding ginger, garlic, red chilli, turmeric ,tamarind and spices in coconut vinegar. It is mostly used to stuff mackerel, pomfret fish and fried, or for shrimp stuffed calamari and many more goan food recipes.

This was a popular dish in our homeย on Friday’s since we did not eat meat. It’s a great recipe either for weekdays or weekend as it does not take too long to make it. You can have it with just plain rice or bread.

    Have been reading through your blog. Really great and easy recipes to try out. I picked up a couple of packets of your spices when I was in Goa on a family vacation last year.. But they do not seem to be available in Delhi. Now with so many e-grocery portals operating all over India, do see if you can place your products with them. So thise of us who stay away from Goa can enjoy your products!
