  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced 
  • 2 scotch bonnet pepper, or any hot pepper of choice 
  • 4 tablespoon curry powder 
  • 1 tablespoon paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne

  • ¼ teaspoon allspice 
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  1. Wash meat in a mixture of warm water and salt. Season goat meat with salt, 1 tablespoon curry, pepper and allspice. Set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat until oil is lightly shimmering.
  3. Add the goat meat to the pot and stir fry for about 7 minutes until meat is brown.
  4. Stir in the onions, garlic, ginger, paprika, thyme, cayenne, nutmeg, cinnamon, tomato paste, and the remaining curry powder.
  5. Pour in the meat broth, stirring well to incorporate. Bring the pot to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, so the pot content is at a gentle simmer.
