This recipe really is superlative. Here's how I make the curry paste without a blender: Grate an onion (this is easier and takes less time than you'd expect). Grind two tablespoons of black pepper (don't reduce the black pepper--it's too distinctive to the recipe's flavor). Cook the onion on medium for two minutes. Then add the ground black pepper and cook for four minutes. Then add the coriander and curry powder (I used two tablespoons in place of the curry leaves) and cook for one more minute. Throughout this process, add up to one cup of water as needed to keep things from sticking to the pan. After that, proceed with the recipe as written. In order to reduce spiciness, I cut the cayenne pepper in half. I'm also guessing (although I don't know) that two tablespoons of curry powder is less hot than a half cup of curry leaves. With these reductions, the recipe was still almost too spicy for my taste buds, so many might want to go down to a tablespoon of curry powder and half tablespoon of cayenne. Adding spinach at the end of the simmering process worked pretty well for me as a way to add some vegetable to the recipe.
This was a great dish and had a good amount of heat to it, the way I like it...A few of the changes I made were, to do the dish in the crock pot for six hours. I liquefied two onions in the food processor and then added all of the seasonings. I browned the goat meat after dredging in seasoned flour, first, then put everything in the crock pot.
Caution Recipe AS IS is very very spicy! This recipe had a good flavor but the spiciness was just too much even after I reduced the amount of Cayenne Pepper to 1.5 Tbsp. and the Salt to only 1.5 tsp. And instead of fresh Curry Leaves I used 1 Tbsp. Curry Powder. I will probably make this recipe again with even less Cayenne Pepper. I'm sure it would be even better with lamb! Yum!
Great recipe! Nice and spicy. In reading the other comments thought I'd share that curry powder which is a blend of many spices is NOT the same as curry leaf (which is well a leaf). If you use curry powder you will get a different flavour than what is intended in the orginial recipe (not bad just different - and likely more spicy). Also if you do find it too spicy you can stir some plain yogurt in to the curry to tone it down. Overall very yummy (with curry leaf OR curry powder)!
This recipe was really delicious. My husband orders goat curry when we eat out and he thought it tasted as good as the restaurant. I omitted the cayenne pepper - it was plenty spicy with the peppercorns. One of my three kids liked it but the other two thought it was too spicy. Next time I will decrease the peppercorns by 1/2 to suit their tastebuds. I also used 1 Tbsp curry powder instead of the leaves. It was really delicious.
Indeed this curry will be very spicy. I used only 1 tsp. of black pepper and no other pepper yet it was quite spicy. Next time I will use lesser pepper. Oh I did not even make this curry with goat meat instead boca burger as I am vegetarian. Though I am sure that this original will taste quite good if you can take the heat.
We are not light weights in the spice department but even after cutting back dramatically based on other reviews this was just too spicy for us. Unfortunately with spices so overpowering we could not even taste the locally raised goat I got at the farmer s market. This is the first time in years I can remember having to trash a meal and make something else.
This was our first time eating goat meat and the first time making a curry. We thought the recipe was delicious however very hot! My husband can tolerate hot and spicy food and he also found it too hot. We are going to experiment and add some yogurt to try to cool down the leftovers and next time reduce the cayenne pepper. We used the fresh curry leaves and thought the paste was excellent. We plan to try this recipe again with lamb.
