Xacuti, pronounced Shakuti, is a Goan curry consisting of grated coconut, onion and spices. It is pretty much similar to the Varutharacha Curry that we make in Kerala. It was the name of this dish, which drew me into trying it. The name sounds stylish, and seems to be rhyming with that of some Italian sports bikes. 🙂 Afterpreparation, I realised that this dish turned out to be as exciting as its name. I generally refer to the Goanfoodrecipes site for my experiments on Goan cuisine. After reading its reviews, I gave a little twist to the original recipe, which I would say was worth it
You can use Beef or Mutton instead of Chicken in this recipe

    Thanks I received your recipe from my Indian friend from Mangalore who sent me the link to your page. I will try the recipe but my feedback would be as follows.
    1. How many people will this recipe feed? That information should be included.
    2. You mention chicken, but you don’t mention which cut. Is it breast, thigh, marylands?
    3. You say take another pan with chicken. I assume this to mean take a clean pan, saute chicken and then add the ground Masala. Is this correct?

    Hi Aaron,

    1. All the recipes in the blog ideally should suffice 4-6 people, unless specified. 2. By chicken, it is meant whole chicken, but you can use any cuts. If using breast pieces, it would be better to cut into smaller pieces, so that the pieces absorb the flavour easily. 3. Yes. Take a clean pan, add chicken along with the masala (No need to saute the chicken) and follow rest of the procedure.

    Good luck with your cooking.
