After collecting my Goat Joint from the amazing Harris Farm Meats https://harrisfarmmeats.scot/ at the Glasgow Food Assembly https://thefoodassembly.com/en/assemblies/7907 this week I then had to decided what I was going to do with it, I came across this amazing recipe and totally fell in love with the ingredients, so here is my creation which deliveries the most amazing flavours in your mouth.
Goat is a new taste for me and my partner and I would thoroughly recommend it.
1 x Goat Joint (this was 1.1kg) was enough for about 4 people.
2 x onions – red or white (I used 1 of each)
2 cloves of garlic or 1 tbsp granules
1″ ginger root or 1 tbsp ginger paste or granules
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp gram masala
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Green Chillies
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tbsp ground almonds (optional)
4 -6 cloves
Put all ingredients (apart from cloves and goat joint) into a food processor and blend into a paste.
Preheat oven to 160 deg.
Remove any fat from the Goat Meat. Use a sharp knife and make deep pockets above the bone at each side and then small cuts all over the meat.
Push the cloves into some of the pockets and also push some of the spice mixture into the rest then cover the meat with remaining mixture.
Place into a lightly oiled baking tin and cover with tin foil loosely.
Bake for approx 3-4 hours and remove foil 10 minutes before end to brown. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Oh so Yummy!
I served with some vegetable couscous which went perfectly. Oh…and a wee glass of Pinot Noir! Delicious.
