Massala Cabri (Goat Curry)

Country: Europa Island
Course: Main
Makes: 4 to 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 lbs goat meat
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onions
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp Masalé Réunionaise
  • 2 tsp dried curry leaves
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups water


  1. Heat the oil over a medium flame and brown the goat pieces. Add the salt and pepper, onions, garlic and ginger. Let cook for a few minutes to incorporate the flavors.
  2. Now add the Masalé Réunionaise and stir. Dilute the tamarind paste with a little bit of water. Mix in the dried curry leaves, diluted tamarind paste and the tomato.
  3. Finally, add enough water to cover the goat pieces. Cover and let simmer until the meat is done (the longer you cook this curry, the more tender the meat will be, so keep that in mind if your meat is from an older animal). Serve with rice.
