How to make Goan Recheado Masala Paste

Recheado Masala : Goa is in the Western Coast of India. Goa has distinct food preparation method as well  as taste. Goan cuisine  is famous all over India. Rice, seafood vegetables, coconut, pork, meat and other local spices are the major ingredients in Goan cuisine. Use of kokum is another distinct feature of Goan cuisine. The climate in Goa is tropical and spices used are intense. Goan cuisine is influenced by Portuguese, Muslim and Hindu way of cooking. Seafood is one of the main attractions of Goan cuisine. You will notice many similarities with Konkani and Malvani cuisine.


Fried fish in Ricardo masala paste is a must try dish in Goa. Here is a recipe to prepare Recheado masala. The taste of  this masala can vary from region to region and from household to household. This is a recipe I got from my Goan Catholic friend during a visit  to her house during one of the vacation.  The fish fry prepared with Ricardo masala is amazing and taste and I recommend having Goan fish fry at least once whenever you visit Goa.
