Caldin De Camarᾶo
Caldin is the ultimate comfort food. The word caldin is derived from the Portuguese ‘caldinho’ which means broth of some kind, and Caldin de Camarão literally means Caldin made with prawns which is the traditional preparation, a Catholic favourite. But the beauty of Caldin is that it lends itself to dishes with vegetables too. An excellent dish called Caldin de Legumes or Vegetable Caldin, which is a mixed vegetable broth with carrots, potatoes, peas etc in a stew-like coconut gravy, is immensely popular. Our Caldin is an ancient recipe that has been handed down generations within families. A classic. Check out the recipe.
