Goan Chicken Xacuti Recipe

The Goan Chicken Xacuti is very popular and a lot of people want to know how to make the chicken xacuti. So I am providing herein the recipe for chicken xacuti. I have recently shared with you the Goan xacuti masala recipe; like I said earlier this is not a spicy recipe and so can be included in regular everyday Goan meals.
Chicken xacuti Goan recipe
1 chicken, cut into medium or small pieces as per your taste
2-3 tspns ginger-garlic paste
salt to taste
2 onions, cut fine
2 tomatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
Curry leaves
2-3 tbspns oil
Xacuti masala
Coconut juice (optional)
Corriander leaves, chopped (optional)

  • Apply salt and ginger-garlic paste to the chicken and keep aside.
  • In a vessel or pressure cooker, fry the onion in oil and add the chicken with a tbspn or two of water.
  • Cook until done. I cook in the pressure cooker for 5 mins. or less on simmer after the first whistle.
  • Put the xacuti masala in a heavy pan and add some water depending on how thick or thin you want your chicken xacuti to be. You may also substitute the water with coconut juice.
  • Bring to boil and add the curry leaves, tomatoes and potatoes.
  • When the potatoes are cooked, add the cooked chicken.
  • Bring to boil and turn off the flame. 
  • Garnish with corriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with rice, pulao, chappatis or bread.
