Goan Recheado Fish Fry

Goan Recheado Fish Fry

I have already posted the most popular Goan Fish masala ,i.e Recheado Masala in my blog. Check out the recipe here. Once the masala is ready, you can always relish on this fry as and when you want. I have tried this recipe on different fishes like Bangda (Mackerel), Pomfret and King Fish. It tastes awesome as side starter and needless to say that it can be teamed up with hard drinks as most goan people prefer.

Pomegranate Raita

Pomegranate Raita

Pomegranate Raita is one of my favorite raita. I just love the colour. Red seeds with white yogurt...hmmm..lovely! My son had to prepare a dish at his school regarding "Cooking without FIRE". He had to carry all the ingredients in a separate box and just mix it in front of the teacher and serve. Cool! Isn't it ?  I didn't want him to carry too many boxes, so I made him to do this raita. After the trial round at home, I got to click some pictures. It's really fun to cook with kids. He enjoys decorating or garnishing the dish.

Recheado Masala (Goan Fish Masala)

Recheado Masala
Those who have visited Goa might be familiar with this famous Goan Recheado Masala. It's a typical Goan food especially used for fish fry. This is completely different from another the most popular Goan Rava Fish Fry recipe.  On our recent visit to Goa, I got to meet one of my friend there and she prepared this Goan Recheado Mackerel fry for us. Though I was familiar with this dish, my hubby and son got to taste this for the first time. I was surprised to see my son finishing off two fish without any tantrums. Even my husband liked it. She was generous enough to lend me a bottle of freshly made Recheado Masala which she had to send it her Restaurant .She shared her recipe too even though I told her I would be further sharing it here in my blog. Love you my friend and thanks a ton for the recipe.

Tomato-Onion- Chutney

There was a time when we used to prepare just two varieties of chutney's at my home. One was coconut chutney and the other was red chutney. After my marriage, when I myself had to cook for the family who loves to have chutney in almost all the breakfast items, I kept on experimenting with chutney's. There are different varieties of chutney's in my space already. Do check them out. 

Tomato-Onion Chutney

Tomato- Onion Chutney is one my trials which everyone loved to have it with my recent trial on South Indian Special- Thatte Idli. Recipe will soon follow. One thing I loved about this chutney was that it had all the spice and tangy flavors except coconut. Sometimes its such a big headache for me to grate the coconut early in the busy mornings for the breakfast. Though I try to plan ahead, I just feel lazy to do that sometimes, yet, I somehow manage to keep a delicious chutney for my family :)

So, here comes the recipe of Onion-Tomato Chutney

After that, its on our menu once in a month or sometimes more. The garlic flavors and the spiciness of chillies gives an aromatic and excellent taste to this fry.

use and high rates. These interesting but expensive books are of no use, once read. In such a
dilemma, discounted price on books can always be a saviour. 

It is pretty hard for customers to find deals and offers which can convince them to buy these

Rava Ladoo/ Rava Laddu- Diwali Sweets

Rava Laddu/ Ladoo is one of my favourite Diwali sweets. Its very easy to make with very less ingredients too. I learnt this from my grandma, just few months back, after my post pregnancy as I have a sweet tooth. I just love the way she does sweets and snacks for festivals. I insisted my mom to prepare again this time for this Diwali which she did and after sharing it with her neighbours and friends, only a few were left out for us. So, I told mom, I will prepare this again the next day all by myself, and I am happy I did it and made about 45 ladoo's. Hurray! Now if you are running out of time, for some festival preparations, you can always opt for this easy and quick laddu's and everyone will just love it.
Rava Laddu
I like the way my grandma prepares this Rava Laddu. She makes it with sugar syrup and that's the way I like it instead of using the powdered sugar and mixing it with roasted rava/Semolina.
