Mango Recheado Squids

My First Innovation for a Challenge. Accepting the challenge with given five ingredients in the Mystery Box- Mango, Red Chilies, Jaggery, Spinach and Cashew nuts... had to come up with an innovative dish that's Goan with a twist. I gave a twist to the Goan Classic "STUFFED SQUIDS" to make it "MANGO RECHEADO SQUIDS" using the most popular Goan Rechado Masala . Stuffing made with squid tentacles, ripe mangoes, spinach and the masala, then finally tossed squids in cashewnuts.
