Mutton Varuval (Malaysian Indian-Style Goat Curry)
This recipe is the star dish every Diwali at my Indian relative's home in Malaysia. I had to beg my husband's aunt to give up her secret recipe so we could make it for our wedding. Serve over rice or with Indian breads such as naan or chapati.
Indian Malaysians have their own unique cuisine which combines the flavors of Malaysian cooking into more typically Indian dishes. This spicy, flavorful, tender goat dish is going to wow you with its complex balance of flavors. Although this is called goat curry, don't expect a typical "curry" flavor. In India, the term curry simply refers to any stew-like dish, with any combination of spices.
This dish can also be simmered on the stovetop instead of in a slow cooker.
