curried goat


Gone fishing
Only one from the BBC website. Have you got some goat meat? It's something that I'd love to try as I've heard that it's lower fat that chicken! low cholestral, high in iron and taste delicious. Did you know that 80% of the world consumes more goat than any other meat? I 'kid' you not :D Just seems underused over here for some reason:confused:
  • 900g goat's meat on the bone, chopped into 2.5cm cubes
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Scotch bonnet pepper, chopped
  • thyme sprigs
  • 1/2 tsp allspice berries, freshly ground
  • 1 bunch spring onion, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 450g Potatoes, peeled and chopped into cubes
  • 3 Tomatoes
  • long grain or basmati rice, to serve
For the jamaican curry powder:

  • 50g coriander seeds, dry-fried in a pan and finely ground in a pestle and mortar
  • 50g ground turmeric
  • 15g ground fenugreek
  • 50g ground ginger
  • 50g ground black pepper
  • 15g ground cardamom
  • 15g ground cinnamon

1. First make the Jamaican curry powder. Mix together the ground coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, black pepper, cardamom and cinnamon. Store in an airtight container.

2. Rub the goat meat with the lime juice. Place the goat meat in a large bowl with the salt, black pepper, Scotch bonnet, thyme leaves, allspice, 3 tablespoons of curry powder, spring onion, onion and garlic. Cover and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, deep, heavy-based frying pan until very hot.

4. Scrape the marinade ingredients from the goat meat and reserve. Fry the meat until browned on all sides. Add the reserved marinade ingredients and fry for 2 minutes.

5. Add the potatoes and tomatoes and pour in enough water to cover the meat.

6. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 2 hours until the goat meat is tender and the gravy coats the back of a spoon.

7. Serve the goat curry with long grain or basmati rice.

If you get the real scotch bonnet or habernero, you might want to use half instead of a whole 1. Also stay away from the seeds coz they cause the runs if not cooked for long enough and they are relly hot. sometimes they sting your hands.

If you can't find goat meat, try mutton ..... very tasty meat. You're more likely to find goat or mutton in a Halal meat shop......
