Curry Goat with Rice & Peas and Roti

I cycled down the road to Catford yesterday and bought a kilo of goat pieces, on the bone, so today we’re eating curry goat! I’m basing it on this BBC Good Food recipe but cooking it in the slow cooker to free up the cooker for the rest of the day’s baking.

It all starts off by making a paste of onion, scotch bonnet (habanero) chillies, garlic & ginger in the food processor.

CameraZOOM-20131013100409881After a couple of minutes, and a few scrape-downs, you get a nice paste.

CameraZOOM-20131013100556757This gets fried up for a few minutes.

CameraZOOM-20131013100927306At this point I was supposed to add spices… but I forgot and added the meat first! It shouldn’t be a problem as all I’m doing here is browning off the meat, and it’s got 9 hours in the slow cooker for the flavours to mix!

CameraZOOM-20131013101937888So, now I add the spices that should have gone in before: curry powder, salt, curry leaves (I could only find freeze dried, nowhere seems to sell them fresh!).

CameraZOOM-20131013102554955This cools a bit then gets mixed with chopped tomatoes and beef stock (lamb stock might have been better, but I didn’t know we had stock cubes for that until it was too late).

When cooked… oh so rich and fragrant!


So as mentioned… rice & peas and roti. Oh and Red Stripe of course!
