Duuuude, how did it go?
Forgot to report back in!
In the end I went for this http://www.bbcgoodfo...an-curried-goat
recipe, which was a bit lazy 'cos it uses ready made spice mixes that are available in big supermarkets.
I can honestly say - and I'm not talking about my cooking ability here, but the recipe - that it was one of the best meals I've ever made. We had a couple of friends round to share it who are superb cooks and they were raving about it for hours afterwards.
The only variation on the recipe was that I used gungo peas instead of kidney beans, plus I added a few diced spuds about half way through to thicken the sauce.
Absolutely sure I'll be making it again and again in the future, it was the stuff of legend. Just the right heat, just the right sweetness and absolutely full of flavour. Ace, thanks for the tips. Also, at just 5 quid a kilo, its hard to understand why more people don't cook goat when we seem to love expensive lamb so much.
The only thing you need to consider if you're making it is that it takes over 3 hours in total. Its really simple to make, it just takes a lot of cooking and I gave it much longer than the recipe suggests.
