About RECHEAD MASALA PRAWNS CURRY Recipe

Rechead Masala Prawns, the name itself, conjures up an image of spice and sophistication. It being a lazy rainy day I decided to cook Prawns in Rechead Masala to spice things up a bit. It is quick to make, requires few ingredients and most of the preparation can be done a day earlier and therefore at the time of serving you do not have to cook for a long time. Whenever I make Rechead masala I make a bottle of it and keep it in the freezer. This way I need not make the masala every time I am making Fish or Prawns. Just thaw the amount I need when I need it and keep the rest back for another seafood dish.
