    Had Jamaican goat curry a few times, it’s actually pretty good but the ones I had were full of chucks of bone, traditional style I guess but I’d rather not have to pick bones out.

    Other than that, very nice.

    Better with the bones in for flavour and texture of the sauce. But yeah, fiddlier to eat…

    Not used them, but…

    Think they farm them over Perchy’s way, white ones, look a bit like sheep to the rest of us 😀

    I had goat in Mozambique a few years ago. Very tasty. But I don’t think they do it in my local Waitrose yet. Seem to be able to get in London (ie https://www.keevilandkeevil.co.uk/goat)

    Not sure, and I’m sure what I’m about to post is all kinds of STW wrong, but the Chicken Itame I had in Wagamama yesterday was something of a revelation curry-wise. Will need to find an authentic recipe for that somewhere.

    Had the pleasure of a lovely goat curry tonight, always fancied trying it, but never seen it on a menu locally. It was bloody nice, my interest is now firmly piqued, just need to find somewhere that sells the meat.

    Any good recipes, or online supplier recommendations?.

    If you want to buy goat meat (or mutton rather than lamb for that matter) try a Halal butcher

    Posh butcher in the middle of Harrogate sells it. Packs of diced meat and also whole leg last time I was in.

    Huddersfield indoor market has a butcher that sells goat. Any town or city with a Carribbean population should have a supplier somewhere.

    I’ve cooked it a couple of times, and the best recipes involve cooking the meat very slowly in the spice mix until it more or less dries out, then adding water and cooking it again, bit like a proper bhuna style.

    Cook it on the bone, much better flavour.

    Point of order, it isn’t “goat curry” it’s “curry goat”.

    Oh, and someone asked about the best curry? IMHO it’s a leg of mutton on the bone cooked in a garam massala-heavy spice mix at just over 100 degrees for a minimum of three hours, or even overnight. Some places will call it Handi or even “staff curry”

    Excellent meat and can be found in some local butchers, our farm shop sells it from time to time. As above curry and look up middle eatern recipes (generally slow cooked (no need to dig a fire pit 🙂 ) with herbs etc and then served with a sauce and rice with sultanas). Will try and google you some.

    Traditional sort of dish

    Plenty of Moroccan themed stuff, last night we had Meurguez (spicy sausages) with a tomato and onion sauce with harrissa (spicy paste – so basically its a curry type dish) and cous cous but you could easily use slow cook goat

    Tried Ti?t canh (goat blood soup) in Vietnam recently – not to my taste, but the stir fried goat dish that followed was delicious.

    one of the sweary boys lives next to a west indian lady. she made us a huge cooking pot of goat curry, rice and peas to take on one of our weekends away riding in the lakes.
    it didnt go down well with 10 or so of the lads. i however loved it and managed a couple of huge bowls full.

    made it myself and it was nice, but not the same.

    So why the thread 😉 ?

    Its a meat best slow cooked and in a suace (imho) hence the recipes follow a theme.

    This is a Delia Smith favourite of mine from ages ago. Could work with Goat although it will have less fat than the beef and that does add to the dish

    Remember buying some KID’s few years back when in Bristol area and the woman I bought them off said she had refused to sell them to “coloured gent” as she put it for fear that they would end up in a curry.

    They went on to be part of a fine herd of grazers that sired many currys n pies later after having a happy life in wales.

    An excellent selection of goats and tasty stew made from them to be had on Tenerife. Yum.

    Sounds like a Nihari.

    Depends if we’re talking Caribbean or Asian.

    IMHO it’s a leg of mutton

    Definitely worth checking out mutton. Traditionally more expensive and superior to lamb.

    😆

    It’s “curried goat” or “goat curry”, the language is English not French.
    If you must try and emulate the way it is spoken with contraction in your script, it would be “currie’ goat”.

    Best curry?
    My signature South Indian style beef and coconut curry is in with a shout, especially if I can be arsed to make parotta as well.
    Makes a refreshing change to the predominantly North Indian food the UK sees.

    I went to a sample tasting menu thing the other night and had pressed goat. Was very nice , meaty bit like water buffalo or venison .
    Be nice in a decent gravy .

    As I said earlier, if you are of Caribbean descent it’s Curry Goat.
