SUNDAY GOAT CURRY - you can make it any day of the week :)
Inevitably, we eat Indian food on Sundays. While I cook Indian food well, my mom is way better than me and I aspire to cook like her some day.
This is her recipe - it is very simple, yet the results are amazingly delicious.
3 lb. goat meat (cut into 1” pieces, bone in) - if you can’t find goat meat, you can substitute with lamb.
1 tbs. cumin seeds
2 bay leaves
2 large cardamom pods or 4 small green cardamom
1 stick cinnamon stick
2 tbs. oil
2 red onions, sliced
1 tsp. salt and then as you need it
cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tbs. roasted cumin powder
2 tbs. coriander powder
4-5 whole green chilies
1 cup whole peeled tomatoes crushed
Heat the oil in a heavy casserole, add the whole spices and cook for about a minute. Add the onions and salt and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes until the onions are caramelized.
Add the cumin and coriander powder and cayenne if using. Cook for 2 minutes until the spices are cooked through.
Now add the goat meat and cook stirring often for another 15 minutes.
Add a cup of water and the tomatoes - bring to a boil and then cook for 30 minutes.
Depending on the age of the goat, it will take anywhere from 45 minutes to and hour and a half for the meat to cook.
Simmer covered, till the meat is soft and falling off the bone.
Serve over basmati rice of Indian roti (flat bread)
Until I cook again!
