Chicken xacutti is one of Goa’s most famous curries. There, it is usually cooked with skinned chicken on the bone. You can do this too for even better flavour but it is also messier to eat.
This chicken curry with coconut is known for being spicy and for it subtle flavour of nutmeg and star anise. There is so much delicious flavour in this coconut and chicken curry it is good on its own. However, I would like to suggest a simple side dish of plain white rice. Perfect!
If you love chicken curry with coconut, then xacutti definitely needs to be one on your list to try.
Make this coconut chicken curry your own.
Xacutti curries are known for being spicy but the spice level is completely in your hands. You could add more/or fewer chillies to taste. Also, I have used quite a lot of coconut in this recipe which is the way I like it.
You could also change the main ingredient from chicken to something else you like. It’s great with lamb, tofu, paneer… If it sounds good to you, do it.
