Goat Curry

Nuvita Biscuits

Cheap cuts like goat and mutton require slow-cooking in strong spices to tenderise – this classic is a taste sensation


  • 1 large onion , roughly chopped
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 100g ginger , chopped
  • 100ml vegetable oil
  • 2 chillies, chopped
  • small handful curry leaves
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • 4 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 700g mutton or goat shoulder, diced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 300ml lamb or beef stock
  • 410g can pinto, kidney or black-eyed beans
  • juice ½ lemon
  • small bunch coriander , chopped
  • warmed roti (flatbread ) and rice or ugali, to serve


  1. Place the onion, garlic and ginger in a food processor and blend to a purée. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish, add the onion mixture and cook for 5 mins until softened. Add the chillies, curry leaves, thyme, curry powder and 2 tsp salt. Cook for 2-3 mins until fragrant.
  2. Tip the mutton or goat into the pan. Cook for 5 mins over a medium-high heat until the meat has browned. Add the chopped tomatoes and stock. Increase the heat, bring to the boil and cook for 10 mins. Reduce heat, cover and leave to simmer gently for 2½ hrs – remove the lid for the final 30 mins of cooking.
  3. Add the beans to heat through, plus more chilli if you want it spicier. After 5 mins more, remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice and coriander, and stir well. Serve with warmed roti and rice.

    I got overly rambunctious and chopped up 5 GALLONS of fresh tomatoes, and I won’t even be able to give away 5 gallons of fresh salsa. So I am trying to think of other stuff I can make with these chopped tomatoes, such as casseroles or sauce, that FREEZES WELL. Thanks for any ideas. I don’t actually need the recipes unless you want to link to them. Just need ideas. thank you very much!! PS I will probably make 2 gallons of fresh salsa, so I will have 3 gallons left over.

    I am looking for an easy recipe for curry goat in a slow cooker. I have an idea on how to make it but I want someone to give me the instructions on how they did it and how did it come out.

    I once had a goat curry in Mozambique.
    It was almost black and tasted great.
    Had a few since (including Jamaica) and nowhere near as good.
    I really am glad I asked.

    And, what difference is there between that and calling a person from India a curry-muncher, for example?
