Chicken Xacuti is actually pronounced as shakuti. It's a unique South Indian dish from the Goan region that is made with poppy seeds and Kashmiri chillies. It's thought that 'shakuti' comes from the Portuguese dish 'chacuti' which has been modified and to produce this dish.
It's a dish that is cooked with some typical South Indian flavours in a typical South Indian style. The chicken is first marinated and the spices roasted and ground to create a fragrant paste. It radiates a beautiful bright red colour which comes from the lovely kashmiri chillies that are a key ingredient of this dish. If you are the mood to wake up your taste buds then this is the dish for you. Hot, fiery and delicious.

This is a really fiery South Indian dish which I like to eat with some plain rice. Looks and tastes amazing and it could blow you away!
