The Goat Stew

Since I'm on a soupy spree, here's a last quick mutton stew if you just don't feel like a salad. This recipe serves 4.

Marinate 1kg goat (bone-in) in salt and a spoon of turmeric. Meanwhile chop an onion, four large cloves of garlic, a cm of ginger and 2 green chillies. Heat a spoon and a half of mustard oil in an open pressure cooker and add a bay leaf, a cinnamon stick, two cloves and a green cardamom. Add the chillies, ginger, onion and garlic to the oil and cook. Once cooked, add the mutton to the cooker and stir. Add a half spoon of cumin, a half spoon of curry powder, a pinch of sugar and salt to taste and mix. Then add 4 cups of water and one potato cut into 4 pieces, and close the cooker. Cook the stew for 6-7 whistles and turn off the heat. Once the pressure cooker loses all steam, open to check if the meat is cooked and if the salt is right. Serve by itself with a dash of lime and a sprinkle of dried mint!
