Goat Ingredients:


  • First make the massale powder.
  • Roast all the spices except the turmeric in a dry skillet until they become fragrant.
  • Cool and grind with the turmeric in a coffee/spice grinder.
  • Using a coffee/spice grinder, grind the garlic cloves, cumin and black pepper.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of water to make a paste.
  • Season meat with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pot.
  • Add goat meat and fry until browned on all sides.
  • Add onions and garlic paste. Fry for a few minutes, until they onions soften and start to change color.
  • Add the masala powder and curry leaves. Stir to combine and fry for 1 minute.
  • Add 4 cups water. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until meat is tender, approximately 2-3 hours, depending on the age of the meat.
  • Once the meat is tender, cook on high to evaporate the extra liquid if necessary. There should be just enough gravy to coat the meat.
  • Add salt and pepper, as needed.
  • To serve, garnish with scallions.
  • Serve with steamed rice.


You will make about 1 cup of the massale powder , that you can use with other vegetable or meat dishes.
