Mackerel Pickle or Mackerel Balchao is one of the delicacy from the Goan Kitchen. Since my childhood I have this and I just love it. Before my marriage my Mom and aunts used to make this delicacy. After marriage I was missing it and learnt it from my Mom. Now I have the pleasure in sharing this Goan traditional recipe with you all. Isn’t it a plus point to follow a Goan food blog?
We Goans cook a lot of dishes with fish. You will find a variety of them in my blog. Stuffed Mackerel masala is another favorite recipe and I love having this with steamed rice and Mackerel curry. My main purpose of starting this food blog was to share the Goan traditional recipes along with some recipes from our Saraswat Brahman cuisine. Apart from fish recipes, you will find all the authentic Goan recipes on my food blog.
They say that you can take a girl out of Goa, but you can’t take Goa out of the girl. Similarly, after settling down in South India, my hubby runs to the fish market early in the mornings on weekends and gets the freshest fish available. Then it is my turn to cook it the way I like. I have slightly modified the original recipe but the taste still remains the same.
