We have a special taste for goat meat and like to serve goat curry at special occasions and festivals. In most of the Nepali households where goat curry is served, they prefer to use meat that has bones in it, because the bones lend a distinct flavor.
Ingredients For Goat Curry Recipe
Goat’s meat doesn’t require much spices and effort as it has its own deep flavor. It’s tastier when you cook it with bones, skin and fats instead of just boneless lean meat.
If you ask me, I also would suggest adding bone marrow and some fatty meat pieces to enhance the flavor of the curry, especially when you are making the goat soup or stew.
And here are the list of Ingredients that you can use while cooking “Goat Curry”:
How to Cook Goat Curry
Typically, Goat Curry is cooked in a slow cooker on low heat which brings out all the flavor from spices. And here’s the recipe that you need for making a delicious goat curry.
Let’s get started.
Take a slow cooker and heat 2 tbsp of vegetable or any other cooking oil and fry cloves, green cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves and fenugreek seed for 15-20 secs in a medium heat until the aroma starts to develop.
Then add finely chopped red onion and fry until it becomes soft and starts changing its color to light brown. After that, put the ginger and garlic paste and turmeric powder, garam masala (according to your taste) in it and fry further for around a minute. Place the chopped mutton in the mixture and cook it for around 5-6 minutes with occasional stirring.
By now the meat starts to become brown and looks delicious. Just by the look of the curry your mouth starts watering. But wait, still a few things left to do.
Moving on, add a tbsp of salt (or according to your taste), meat masala and red chili powder and cook it for around 2 minutes with occasional stirring and add diced tomato. Again, cook it further for around 4-5 mins until the diced tomato becomes soft and dissolves in the curry. Then, the oil starts to separate from the masala.
Make it tasty by adding a tbsp of butter or ghee (clarified butter) and give it a stir. If you want to make more gravy or soup, add more water and bring it to a boil in low heat. Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves.
Your Goat Curry is ready to serve.
Usually, this quantity serves 3-4 people. It is served best with rice, a side of lentils and vegetables of your choice. You can also eat goat meat curry with roti/bread, dhindo etc. Also, if you are making soup, you can also eat it as a starter.
