Fish itself is low in calories and high in protein, vitamins and minerals thus making this Deluxe Sauce a very healthy dish, especially when served with plain rice. And as with all Madhuban Sauces, it works equally well with prawns of all sizes, lobster, chicken and ‘white’ meat.
The subcontinent has a huge coastline and too many rivers and lakes to count. Consequently fish has always played a very big part in the Indian diet. Goa is India’s most popular tourist district. It is located on the south-west coastal area of India and its golden-sand beaches stretch uninterrupted for miles and miles. Goa is unique in being largely Christian, a legacy of the former Portuguese occupiers, as is their love of pork, beef, lamb, poultry and the mighty chilli. Certain Goan dishes are extremely chilli hot, but not this fish sauce which reflects the fact that Goans equally relish subtle tastes. Mind you, if you are one of those who do like it hot, simply add chilli powder to the sauce whilst you heat it up.
