Chicken Xacuti - Goan Curry

Chicken Xacuti is a unique and a famous curry prepared in Goa, India. It has wonderful blend of fresh spices, cooked with coconut milk and tamarind water which results in spicy and flavourful gravy. The actual recipe calls for Kashmiri chillies since I did not get them, I have replaced it with dry red chillies. Though I have been to Goa only once, but I have a special craving for Goan dishes. You can also check my Chicken Vindaloo here.

Chicken Vindaloo

Chicken Vindaloo is a very popular dish in Goa. I used to make this dish but never knew why it has the name vindaloo. But I searched it now to find that it has derived its name from the Portugese dish “Carne de Vinha d Alhos” which uses meat, vine and garlic. This dish has been modified with the substitution of vinegar and spices.
