Xacutti (pronounced sha-koo-tee) is a Goan dish that is intense and hot with layers of spice and toasted poppy seeds. Historically it was a dish eaten to rid the paddy field workers of colds during the wet monsoon season, as the spices were believed to have medicinal properties. The star anise, cinnamon and fennel give it a fantastic depth of flavour with a rich tangy heat, best served with plain rice and the cooling coconut chutney.
