Goan Xacuti Curry Powder

Xacuti Curry Powder

Xacuti Masala Powder is a hot and spicy curry powder from Goa. This popular curry powder is the basic powder used in many nonveg preparations.

I adapted this curry powder from this site and used only half the measurement given. I converted to cups and spoons so that it was easy for me to half the recipe. The recipe calls for all whole ingredients since I only had powders of those, I went ahead using them.

Though this Xacuti Masala Powder is popularly used in Nonveg preparation, I don’t see why it can’t be used in Vegetarian preparation. That’s exactly what I have done as I have used to make a Paratha and a Masala Dosa

The Xacuti Potato Masala blended well in a paratha though in the dosa it felt like spicy masala, unlike the regular potato masala you would eat. Still, I felt it was a good change from the regular one.

The curry powder stays good for a long time since we roast the ingredients. It’s best to refrigerate still.
