Xacuti Masala Powder

Xacuti Masala Powder

Xacuti Masala Powder is a curry powder from the Goan Cuisine that is used to make the Xacuti Chicken Gravy. However, the spice powder can be used in a variety of dishes as well.

Ever since the last time when there was a need to make a paratha starting with X and I ended up thinking about an aloo paratha that’s spiced with Xacuti Curry Powder, I knew the next few series that call for X, will be with this special spice blend.

Last time I used a different Xacuti Curry Powder to make the Xacuti Aloo Stuffed Paratha and Xacuti Masala Dosa, this time I came across a couple of different spice blends and decided to combine to make my own version and cooked up a Xacuti Paneer Coconut Biryani and Xacuti Masala Rice in the AtoZ Biryani, Pulao and Khichdi Festival this April.

Both the rice dishes came out really so well and we enjoyed it much. I still have some Xacuti Masala powder left and I will be experimenting soon.

This spice Powder that I am sharing today doesn’t have coconut in it as I was making a Coconut Pulao as the base for both the dishes. However, Goan Xacuti Masala features coconut predominantly and you should include that in the spice powder if you are not making coconut pulao as the base.

We are doing BM#101, Week 2 where I am sharing Condiments.

  1. Ya, I remember how I made this powder and used it to save my X posts for the mega marathon 🙂 I have come across different variations of this powder. Yours is one more. Good one, Valli.

  2. Xacuti rice was a show stopper for letter X i Marathon. I looked for masala in stores here but then came to know from group that it is home made only . can now try it our with oyur recipe. Sound so flavourful

  3. Never thought of using xacuti powder in other dishes. Nice idea. Last time I made xacuti chicken I used a paste. Xacuti spice powder sounds like a better alternative to paste.
