Every time I have potatoes in the house, I end up making this. Garlic+lemon+chilli = heaven on a plate! It's also a great way to use leftover baked potatoes. Some notes:
• You can fry the diced potatoes instead of baking them. I just avoid frying, myself.
• Hot pepper paste is perfect for this, but you can get quite close to it by using dried chilli flakes (or even cayenne powder) and tomato paste.
• Feel very free with the quantities! Have as much garlic, lemon and chilli as you like. And don't worry if you don't have cilantro/coriander leaves at hand, either, I do without it most of the time.
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.
