Xacutti Curry Pack

Serves: 4 – 6 Vegetarian Vegan

A rich and appetizing coconut-based dish from the sunny shores of Goa. The addition of roasted garam masala and ginger gives this curry a lovely warm finish.

This recipe is from Brij Fernandes, a taxi-driver in Calangute. When he cooked it for Rafi, he served it with plenty of feni'a liquor made from cashew nuts - very potent!

Try it with: Belly pork or firm white fish, the staples of the varied Goan diet.

Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.

  1. Empty the contents of the pack into a pan with 300ml water. Simmer for 5 minutes.

  3. Add a 400g tin of chopped tomatoes, 2 tbsp tomato puree, 2 tbsp vinegar (any) and 2 tsp sugar.

There's nothing better than a warm Xacutti after a long day. I normally cook it with chicken thighs (always on the bone for a bit of extra flavour) marinated in lime juice, with loads of pilau rice, parathas and chutneys on the side.
