Flavorful Curry Goat Recipe
- 2 pounds goat meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
- 1 scotch bonnet pepper (optional, for heat)
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon garam masala
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Fresh cilantro, for garnish
- Cooked rice or roti, for serving
- In a large bowl, combine the goat meat, curry powder, onion, garlic, and grated ginger. Mix well, ensuring that the meat is coated with the curry powder and aromatics. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate overnight for more flavor.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the marinated goat meat and brown it on all sides, stirring occasionally. This step helps seal in the flavors and adds depth to the curry.
- Once the meat is browned, add the diced tomatoes and cook for a few minutes until they begin to soften.
- Add the potatoes, carrots, and scotch bonnet pepper (if using) to the pot. Stir to combine with the meat and tomatoes.
- Pour in the coconut milk and water, ensuring that the meat and vegetables are submerged. If needed, add more water or coconut milk to cover the ingredients.
- Sprinkle in the garam masala, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well to distribute the spices evenly.
- Bring the curry to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let it cook gently for about 2 to 3 hours, or until the goat meat is tender and the flavors have melded together. Stir occasionally and add more water if needed to maintain the desired consistency.
- Taste the curry and adjust the seasoning if necessary, adding more salt, pepper, or curry powder according to your preference.
- Once the goat meat is tender, remove the pot from the heat. Allow the curry to rest for a few minutes.
- Serve the curry goat hot over cooked rice or with warm roti. Garnish with fresh cilantro for a burst of freshness.
Enjoy the aromatic and flavorful curry goat, which pairs perfectly with the rice or roti, and savor every delicious bite!
