Prawn Balchão (Goan Spicy Prawn Pickle)

Everyone knows Prawn Balchão as a main course. It is actually more like a pickle! In the days prior to refrigeration, prawns (and sometimes pork) would be left to marinate in a vinegar-based sweet and sour tomato-chilli sauce. Here, the Balchão would be left for days to marinate without reheating.
