Goat curry (Malay: kari kambing, Indonesian: kari kambing or gulai kambing), Curried Goat, or Curry Goat is a curry dish prepared with goat meat, originating from the Indian subcontinent. The dish is a staple in Southeast Asian cuisine, Caribbean cuisine, and the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. In the Caribbean and Southeast Asia, the dish was brought to the region by the South Asian diaspora, and has subsequently influenced the respective local cuisines. This dish has also spread throughout the Indo-Caribbean diaspora in North America and Europe.
In Burmese cuisine, goat curry, called seittha hnat (ဆိတ်သားနှပ်), is a common Burmese curry, consisting of braised curry spiced with masala, cinnamon sticks, bay leaf, and cloves.
In Indonesia, the dish is called kari kambing, and usually served with roti cane flatbread or steamed rice. Kare or kari (curry) is an Indian influenced dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Goat curry is popular among the Muslim community in the region.
Curried goat is a dish that is made for special occasions in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal. Goat is a meat of choice for Hindus because they do not eat beef and for Muslims because they do not eat pork. Therefore, the dish serves as a good medium. In Jamaica, the dish is popular at parties and special occasions. It is flavoured with a spice mix that is typical of Indo-Jamaican cooking. This dish is usually served with rice, dal bhat, or roti. Restaurants in North America and Europe may serve other typical Caribbean side dishes such as fried plantain as an accompaniment. There are many variations on the dish that include using mutton when goat is not available or bulking it out with potatoes.
It is popular during Eid al-Adha, which is when a goat is sacrificed by Muslim Indo-Caribbeans.
In Britain, the carnivals in St Pauls, Bristol and Notting Hill, London and other Caribbean cultural events will usually have curried goat available as well as other regional foods.
