1) Heat half of the oil and brown the coconut & garlic, stirring occasionally as it browns very quickly!

2) Heat the remaining oil in a thick bottomed pan, add the onions and fry for a minute or two before adding the chicken pieces. Fry for a few minutes, until the chicken begins to change colour.

3) Add the browned coconut & garlic followed by the Goan Xacuti curry powder & some seasoning, stir well.

4) Add the hot stock & tamarind paste, stir well. Once the mixture has reached simmering point, cover & cook for one hour on a very gentle heat.

5) Squeeze with lime juice before serving hot with basmati rice or Indian breads.

Tip: Try using crab instead of chicken for an alternative dish.
