I cannot stand looking at some of the food pics I have taken earlier, like the earlier version of this curry. As flavorful as this curry actually is, it did not even potray the actual looks. This was one of the 1st recipes I had posted when I had started blogging. As time is passing by, I am trying to update the pictures and sometimes update the recipe as well.
Add oil to the pan and saute the onions and ginger garlic paste till onions become translucent.
Now add the ground paste and fry till oil oozes out.
Add tomatoes and cover it till tomato softens.
Add the goat meat and water. Cover with a lid and let it cook in the pressure cooker for 4-5 whistles or till the meat is cooked and tender. I directly added uncooked meat and water to the spices and then cooked it in the cooker. Be careful to turn the heat to low after 1 whistle or the curry can burn.
If you want to be on the safer side, cook the goat 1st, in the cooker with water, salt and turmeric and then add it to the onions and spices and then cook in an open pot. Turn the heat to medium and let the curry simmer for approximately 25 minutes, stirring in between.
Short of time? Try the slow cooker method. Please refer notes.
