Photo courtesy of jasonlamI grew up in Birmingham which has a big African - Caribbean population and ate a lot of curry goat and got many a tip along the way! ( note the name; it's never goat curry!) If you don't want to make the curry goat yourself, you'll usually find it on the menu of a Caribbean restaurant. If you're in Birmingham and fancy something less conventional try the Island Hut takeaway on Lozells Road, Lozells. Their curry goat is pretty famous!
Now a word on sourcing your goat...
Unless you live in an area with a large Caribbean or East Asian population you may well have problems getting it. You can however buy goat meat online both in the UK and USA. If you really can't find it, it is possible to use mutton. It certainly won't be the same, but still delicious.

Â½ - 1 chilli (scotch bonnet or bird eye) finely chopped
Approx 900ml stock. (Lamb or vegetable is fine)

How To Make The Caribbean Curry Goat
The day before you want to eat your Caribbean Curry Goat mix together the curry powder, coriander seeds, allspice and thyme. Put your diced goat in a large freezer bag, tip in the mix, tie the bag and massage really well into the meat. Leave in the fridge overnight
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees centigrade.
Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the goat meat until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside. Tip in the onions, garlic, ginger and chilli and fry until soft. Return the goat to the pan and cover with stock. This needs to come about 10cm above the level of the meat. Bring to the boil, and put on the lid.
Remove from the heat and place in the oven for 1 Â½ hours until the meat is tender. Remove the meat from the stock and simmer until it is reduced by about half. Return the meat to the pan to coat and serve with The Very Best Rice and Peas.
