Goat curry has been around ever since men met goats. Widely consumed in India, Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, tender and lean goat meat makes the best meat for barbecue. You can mix it with rice in dishes like goat biryani, complementing its rich flavor.
Goat curry is a braised form of goat cooked with a touch of spicy curry. The best place to eat goat is anywhere on the Silk Road or somewhere in North Africa like Algeria. The next best place is Sapphire on Broadway between 68th and 69th Streets. I know. I have been enjoying Satish’s goat curry for years (Satish, seen below, is Sapphire’s owner).
