Try this easy way to cook a delicious goat curry.

Ingredients (Serves 4−6)

  • ½ jar Latasha’s Kitchen Rogan Josh Masala Paste
  • 1.3 kg chunky goat pieces, on the bone
  • ½ cup Farmers Union Greek Style All Natural Yoghurt, whipped
  • Pinch turmeric and chilli powders
  • 2 large red onions, sliced
  • 1 − 2 Portobello field mushrooms, finely sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick, a few bay leaves, 1 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 − 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Water


  • Whip together ½ cup Farmers Union Greek Style All Natural Yoghurt, ¼ cup pouring cream and juice of a lemon
  • Bunch of coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 green chillies, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. Make the marinade by combining ½ cup yoghurt with turmeric, chilli powder and a pinch of salt. Add goat to this mixture and allow to marinate in the fridge overnight.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 120˚C.
  3. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based casserole dish on the stove. Caramelise the red onions with the cinnamon stick, bay leaves and sweet paprika. Add the mushrooms and fry a few minutes longer. Next add Latasha’s Kitchen Rogan Josh Masala Paste and heat for 3 minutes. Pour in ¼ cup water, gently simmer for another 5 − 8 minutes until aromatic and the paste mixture is sizzling. Add the tomatoes and cook for a couple of minutes until they break down.
  4. Add the marinated goat to the spicy mix and cook for about 5 minutes over moderate heat until it is sealed. Add salt and a small amount of water to the meat. Bring to a quick boil before covering with a lid and slow cooking in the oven for 4 hours.
  5. Remove the cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Leave to cool briefly before stirring in the yoghurt, cream and lemon mixture.

    You can also pull the meat off the bone to serve the curry.

  6. Serve with steamed rice and green beans, garnished with coriander leaves and green chillies if liked.

Note: As children under 12 years of age may find this dish a little spicy, you could reduce the rogan josh paste to ⅓ jar and increase the amount of onions and tomatoes used. Serve with a spoonful of full fat yoghurt on the side.
