Goan cuisine is strongly influenced by the Portuguese, since they ruled Goa till 1961. Xacuti (Chacuti in Portuguese) is spicy curry made either with chicken or crabs. The roasted spices give such a lovely aroma to this recipe. You can tone down the heat by reducing the number of chillies.
This is my favourite midweek recipe. As long as you have some frozen tortellinis on hand, you can make this within minutes. The ingredients can be easily found in your fridge. The chicken broth can be substituted with a vegetable broth. It will still taste great. I promise!
