Prawn Xacuti Recipe

One such absolutely finger-licking good Indian curry is the Xacuti, which is widely consumed in the Konkan region comprising of Goa and certain part of Maharashtra as well.

The Prawn Xacuti curry is a classic seafood preparation made with prawns cooked in a mildly spicy coconut curry rich in exotic spices like cinnamon, cardamoms, nutmeg, and more. Best served with steamed rice or buns, the recipe is a great choice for people who love their seafood and have a palate for hot food.
