The Portuguese word for stuffing is Recheio. The recheado masala is primarily used in Goa to stuff fish. However, it’s a versatile sauce that may be used in many other dishes.

Step 3: Grind the soaked spices with salt and sugar into a fine paste without using any water.

- You can reduce the amount of sugar. We like to use more because it gives the masala a nice body and taste.
