This recipe is the ‘easy version’ of Bengali-style goat curry. If you are cooking goat meat for the first time or even cooking a curry for the first time - this is the recipe for you. This is the easiest goat curry that you will make. However don’t be fooled by this simple recipe, the end result can easily compete with any restaurant-style goat curry. I have also provided some variations if you would like to experiment.
