So what did I do with the rechado paste I posted about earlier? Made some delicious, succulent Prawn Rechado. Very easy to make. First of all make the rechado paste. Marinate the prawns with it and stir fry. See, easy-peasy. I told you.
23 to 25 large prawns [I kept the tail on of a few of them]
1 to 2 tbsp oil
1 to 2 tbsp water
1 tbsp coriander leaves
Marinate prawns in the paste. Refrigerate for a few hours [I kept it overnight .]
In a large pan, heat oil. Add marinated prawns along with all the paste. Sprinkle water. Cook covered till the prawns are completely cooked. Keep stirring to avoid the masala from sticking to the pan. Adjust salt. Garnish with coriander leaves.
The Goan Rechado masala is a little sweeter, so add extra sugar if needed. I did not want to make it too sweet so I stuck to the 3tsp sugar I added while making the paste.
Hope you enjoy this Goan delicacy as much as I do :)!
