Prep time 70 mins,

Cook time 30 mins,

Total time 1 hour 40 mins,

Serves: 5,


1 lb goat meat, cubed,

1 lime,

1 onion, chopped,

2 tablespoons green seasoning,

4 tsp masala (divided),

2 tbsp curry (divided),

½ tsp saffron (tumeric),

4 cloves garlic (divided),

7 leaves culantro, chopped,

4 sprigs chive, chopped,

1 tbsp soy sauce (optional),

1 tbsp coconut powder,

Salt to taste,

Pepper to taste,


1. Wash the meat with the lime and drain. Add salt, green seasoning, 2 teaspoon masala, saffron (tumeric) powder ,1 tbsp curry powder, onion, two cloves of chopped garlic, the culantro (chadon beni ) and chive. Mix well. Leave to marinate for at least one hour.

2. Tip: You can use this time wisely and boil your rice or knead flour for bake or roti, while the meat marinates.

3. Heat the oil and saute the other 2 cloves of chopped garlic. In about ½ cup of water, mix 2 teaspoon of masala and 1 tablespoon of curry powder. Add to the sauteed garlic and allow to cook for about one minute.

4. Add the marinated goat and mix in the curry thoroughly. Then add the soy sauce (optional). Allow to cook for about 5 minutes or when you see the water is drying down. Add the coconut powder and enough water to cover the meat and pressure cook for 15 minutes.

Tip: To avoid burning the meat, here’s what, When you add the water heft the pressure cooker and remember it’s weight. Then as you cook, periodically heft the weight and shake the pressure cooker to test if there is any water remaining.

N.B. Use this method only for meats and not for split peas. That’s a MONSTER all by itself.

For peas try the following method…. Look at the amount of steam and use your sense of smell; if you see wisps of steam and get a slight aroma, check your pressure cooker. After about 15 minutes check the meat for tenderness. By this time it should be about half done. Top up with water and pressure cook for another 15 minutes or until the water has evaporated (Similar to the amount of water you had before you started to pressure cook the goat).
