Kolhapur, a city in the south central part of India in the state of Maharashtra, is renowned for its spicy cuisine and this delicious chicken curry is no exception. An integral part of the dish is the goda masala, a special blend of darkly toasted spices and coconut that creates a delicious savoury flavour. It’s served here with a cooling coconut raita and a simple cucumber salad.

Birria is a popular street food traditionally made with cheap cuts of meat, often goat, mutton or beef which are slow cooked in a broth flavoured with chillies, tomatoes and spices. It can either be served as a soup, or as here with the meat separated and served inside tortillas and a bowl of the warming broth on the side. Here we’re garnishing the dish with finely shredded cabbage, a zingy pico de gallo salad, smoky chipotle salsa and cooling sour cream.
