Xacuti Curry with Potato Dumplings- Goan Cuisine

Xacuti curry is classical non-vegetarian Goan
recipe, which prepared with xacuti masala and chicken or mutton stuff. But Simply
Tadka is vegetarian food blog, so I prefer to prepare potato dumplings instead
of non-vegetarian stuff.
Xacuti Curry (vegetarian version) is made
with potato dumpling cooked in Gaon flavors of spices, tamarind and onion-tomato
paste.
Here is roundup of all six recipes under regional
