#Paneer Rechad

#Paneer Rechad

Rechad is a delicious way of eating fish.

At least my husband and elder daughter concur with the rest of the Goans.

In fact, it’s used more often in Catholic families but that does not mean that it’s not used by Hindus. I have tasted the best Mackerel Rechad at Hindu Houses.

Like I said I do not enjoy rechad but my husband and elder daughter love it. So I decided to make it for them. What better time than now when we at #Blogging Marathon are trying to bring to you a variety, a variety in our various marathons.

This one is no different, aptly called “#Buffet on Table “this week our quest is to bring you different combos from in India.

For the choice of Goa, I had help from Shanta my friend who is an amazing foodie and churns out yum food and many times I wonder why I have a blog!!!

Anyway, this is a scaled down masala you can make it and store it in the fridge for 1 month.

After the masala is ready you just apply it to the fish fillets or prawns and shallow fry them. If they are used in mackerels then the fillets are sliced horizontally and then the paste is applied.

Well, you did not think I will be making fish rechad did you? Likely that I will run a mile just to avoid the fish. I have no problem with the cooked fish but I cook it???

Paired with #Vadiya che Kismoor yum….

    I want to try the fish version. Both of us love fish and I make it at least once a week. This would be a variation to my regular fish. Thanks to you and your friend for the recipe.
