Today we have an authentic recipe handed down straight from the Portuguese while they were in our beloved Goa! Its called the Prawn Rissois, pronounced as Rissoee its a mouth watering appetizer, that melts in your mouth!
There are two steps involved in the Prawn Rissoe Recipe, first is to make the stuffing that’s put inside the rissole. Is possible to make it with even ham, corned beef or anything else you think will go well, but this Rissole is with prawns.
Prawn Rissole Stuffing:
White sauce with prawns!
Prawn Rissole Stuffing Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Milk
3 Teaspoons maida
1 Heaped Tsp Butter
1/2 Cup boiled prawns

Make a white sauce using the butter, maida & milk. Add the milk and butter on the fire, when warm add the maida slowly and stir continuously.
Clean and boil the prawns and keep them aside.
Add the salt, peeper and the dash of grated nutmeg to the white sauce.
When the mixture thickens add the prawns and keep stirring.
Grated cheese is for the taste, this really depends on how much flavor and taste you want. Add the cheese and stir it up, it should all blend pretty well.
Once thats done keep it aside, its now time to make the dough that will act as the enclosing for the Rissole mixture.
Pour the water into the vessel and heat it up
Bring the water, salt and ghee to a boil.
