New for Two: Goan Prawn Cafreal with Pilau Rice

Rated 5/5 from 1 Customer Review

The spectacular food eaten in Goa is familiarly Indian but with cooking techniques and ingredients (such as vinegar and chillies) introduced by the Portuguese who colonially ruled there for 450 years. Here we’ve got a famous Goan dish known as prawn cafreal, served with a mint and mustard seed pilau rice, mango raita and a cucumber and radish salad.

A very wet week on Madeira - David said this Prawn Cafreal (topically Portuguese!) was absolutely the best part of the holiday. Wonderful - I'll definitely be buying these easy kits to take on holiday again.
