Goat is an extremely lean meat and a great alternative to lamb. It's at home in almost any curry, with Jamaican goat curry a particular favourite, though Indian curries commonly feature goat, too. If you like lamb, give goat a try!

    I would love to have an authentic story behind this dish but truth is, despite visiting the Caribbean a number of times, I first heard of and tried goat curry at Turtle Bay restaurant in Southampton. It’s all about the all-spice for me and I use quite a lot. Of course it’s just a guide so it’s worth experimenting with for your own taste. The thing I love about curry is that it always tastes better a few days later. Make a big batch for days when you’re pushed for time. Reheated food is the best fast food.

    A delicious Keralan curry. Black pepper is found in abundance in Kerala and coupled with curry leaves it takes goat to a whole new level. Serve with rasam and rice or with rotis. You may substitute lamb for the goat if you wish.

    An aromatic, comforting curry made in the pressure cooker. In India, this curry is normally made with kid goat meat but you could also use lamb. If you don't have a pressure cooker, adjust cooking time and simmer on low heat for 2 or 3 hours or until meat is tender. Add potatoes for the last hour.
