Vegetable Xacuti

After the spicy, Matara Chaat in Delhi, lets peep into Goa, have a dip in the Arabian Sea and enjoy the various tourist spots here. Incidentally, Goa is a state which attracts a lot of domestic and international tourists as it is known for its beaches and world heritage architecture. 

Since it is part of the Coastal area of Western India, sea food forms part of its varied cuisine. Goan food can be divided into Goan Catholic and Goan Hindu cuisine each with distinct charateristics, cooking styles and tastes.

Xacuti in its non-vegetarian form is very popular with the natives. I have attempted the vegetarian version which was a delight to have.

Check it out for now while I am off to take you through the nearby state of Gujarat.

Ingredients - 

Cauliflower florets 2 cups
Potatoes peeled, cubed 1 cup
Beans chopped few
Carrots, peeled and chopped 1 cup
Onions chopped 1 cup
Tomato Puree 1 cup
Ginger-Garlic paste 2 tsp
Peanuts / Cashews 3 Tbsp
Xacuti Masala Powder 1 Tbsp
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Tamarind Paste as needed (Optional)
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp)

Vegetable Xacuti

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil and cumin seeds(jeera). Saute the onions and ginger garlic paste.

After the onions are brown, add the tomato puree and let it cook until the raw smell disappears.

In a blender puree the onion-tomato mixture along with some roasted peanuts / cashews.

In the same pan, let the puree cook until the oil separates. Add the vegetables (preferably partially cooked - to reduce the cooking time), turmeric, salt and let it simmer.

Adjust the flavors as needed and remove from fire.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with roti/rice.

Preparation Time 25 min
Serves 5-6
