An aromatic melt in your mouth goat dish laced with yogurt and our mom’s blend of spices. This is a labor intensive dish, kept for weekends or entertaining. Our starter sauce enables you to this any night of the week! We use locally sourced goat from a Bay Area farm.
The story behind this curry is that an English army officer became ravenously hungry while traveling in a train. He followed his nose to the pantry car where a spicy mutton curry was simmering. He was offered a taste, whereupon he burnt his tongue because of the spices. The helpful cook reduced the heat with some yogurt and served it up. From that day on, this curry has been served on all first-class compartments of Indian trains.
During the British Raj in India, this lamb curry was served with dinner rolls and/or rice on long distance train journeys.
