During rainy season when we don’t get fresh fish in Goa, we make Sukya Sungtachi Kismoor or Dry prawns kismoor. The name kismoor means mixture or to mix everything together. I make this kismoor in two ways. I have explained one way here which I had learnt from my Goan house help.
The other type is just by mixing raw grated coconut, raw onion and other ingredients. Hubby loves the 1st way. We also make dry mackerel kismoor (click for the recipe). So whenever we don’t get fresh fish, we use dry fish and make different types of recipes using it.
We Goans love fish. Fresh or dry does not matter. If there is no fresh fish specially when fishing is banned, people consume dry fish which they store for over a year. Kismoor is now available in Goan restaurants too and is an authentic Goan dish. Just have it as a side dish with your fishcurry, rice and fried fish.
