Goan Xacuti is a powerful Indian spice mix. It contains 14 ingredients including poppy seedsajowan, fenugreek and cinnamon. Perfect with beef, lamb and fish, Goan Xacuti is hot with a subtle sweetness.

This curry blend is used to make the traditional Xacuti curry. In Goa, a local fisherman would catch a fish or buy a local chicken. They would then prepare the sauce to serve it with.

Like many dishes in Goa, Goan Xacuti is heavily influenced by Portuguese cuisine due to colonisation. In Portugal, the dish is called ‘chacuti’.

This spice mix is featured in Delia Smith’s cookbook How to Cheat at Cooking on page 143. The recipe is for Goan Lamb Xacuti and includes both Tamarind and Goan Xacuti.

    It was not easy to find Xacuti curry outside Goa, so I was thrilled when I found it at “Seasoned Pioneers”! It tastes very good and I use it frequently.
    It is already the second time that I ordered it; I also ordered some other spices which I’m going to try soon. The packaging is nice too. Great shop!

    First time I have used this Xacuti Curry Powder. It was wonderful in a chicken and mushroom curry. Will definitely be using this curry powder again.

    The Goan Xacuti curry powder is a very good product, it’s a must for my cooking and I’m happy I found it in the Seasoned Pioneers shop. I will buy more

    Love this curry powder, ordered it originally to make Delia Smith’s recipe and now use it regularly with lamb or chicken. Good quality product with a decent heat.

    Ordered this Goan curry powder & delivery was really fast, thank you. Fabulous product and it’s delicious in Thai chicken soup 🙂

    Reasonably hot, sweet (but not because of added sugar) with beautifully rounded curry flavours – without doubt, this is a superb curry mix. My absolute favourite tbh. Delicious!!

    I decided to order the Goan Xacuti Curry Powder as a change from my usual curry spices and have to say I wasn’t dissapointed. As with all Seasoned Pioneers products the level of flavour and spice was spot on. I used the recipe from the product page, which was very simple to make and tasted delicious. Fantastic !

    I first experienced Xacuti curry in Goa, then tried to track down suppliers of the basic curry in U.K. At last, I have discovered “Seasoned Pioneers” and their curry powder is as good as I remember !
