This curried goat and pigeon peas is the bomb. When you’re tired of the same old same old way of preparing goat I would recommend that you try adding some pigeon peas into the mix. It really brings out the taste of the curried goat and makes it a complete side dish that you could serve with rice or roti.
For this recipe I used rice, and as always it was delicious. The pigeon peas was a great filler ingredient to use with the goat. Lately I’ve been watching what I’m eating and had to take a good look at the amout of carbs I have been consuming. So, this recipe in which potatoes are a common addition was substituted with the pigeon peas that was still a great alternative.
On the point of pigeon peas, that was something else I had to take a good look at. Usually, most people (myself including at one point long time ago) would just go shopping and pick up a few cans of pigeon peas. I encourage you to change that; and seek out fresh or frozen pigeon peas. I had bought frozen green pigeon peas, it didn’t have any preserving agents. Much better that the overcooked and processed peas sold in tins. Fresh or frozen pigeon peas are much more filling and satisfying than the peas in the tin. So enjoyed a delicious curried goat meal with the benefits that go with healthy eating.
Other than those alternatives I believe the dish was well recieved by the family and now it’s here for you to try. I do hope my foreign readers could get their hands on some Chief Brand Duck and Goat Curry Powder for this dish. It’s not absolutely necessary but will really bring out the taste of the goat.
