9.Prawns rechaedo masala

Prawn rechaedo masala
This one is a Goan special ,I fell in love with during my recent trip to Goa.The sauce is spicy,sweet and sour with a hint of alcohol.Traditionally coconut feni is used which is the country liquor extracted  from the coconut palm tree...but I used rum instead.The prawns or fishes like mackarel, pomfret etc.  are stir fried in this masala and served hot with rice.One can add cinnamon,cardamom and all spice powder as well but that is not the authentic method.Also traditionally onions are not used but I have used it for the thickness of the gravy.
