This is a lovely goat curry recipe that is full of warming spices but not much heat.
It is colourful, tasty, filling and easy to make which as you know is my forte right here.
You will need:-
- About 1.5kg bone in goat meat.
- 1 tbsp spice blend ( equal parts ground cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg).
- Juice of half a lemon.
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger, turmeric and garlic (crushed into a paste).
- 2 medium green capsicums, chopped into strips.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Two sliced onions.
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon curry powder.
- I large potato, chopped.
- 1 large chopped carrot.
- Coriander leaves for garnish.
Crush the garlic, ginger and turmeric. Add the lemon juice, spice blend, salt and pepper into a thickish paste.
Cut the goat meat into medium pieces, smear with the spice paste, cover and let marinate for a few hours or overnight.
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan till hot.
Sear the meat till brown to seal the juices inside.
Add the onion and mix well till soft then add the curry powder and tomato paste, mix well make sure it doesn’t burn. Add 2 cups of water, enough to just cover the goat.
Lower heat and let the goat simmer for an hour or so, till tender…Then add the chopped capsicum, potato and carrot and simmer a while till the potatoes are done and the sauce is to your liking.
As it cooks, do not forget to check seasoning and stir after a while so it doesn’t burn and stick at the bottom of the pot.
Garnish with coriander and serve hot.
Cooking it low and slow allows all the spices to cook down and release all their awesome flavour into the meat, potatoes and carrots. The meat is tender and falls of the bone but not mushy, and the potatoes and carrots are cooked but still firm and full of the amazing curry flavour.
