I love curry and have share many recipes over the years.  Goat curry is one of my favorites!  I’m sharing a new recipe and video up on my Youtube Channel today(subscribe!).  I served it with my Mom’s Roti which is the best so be sure to head on over!  Goat curry, or curry goat as it’s referred to in the Caribbean, is one of the more popular Caribbean curries as it is commonly found in most Caribbean and Guyanese restaurants.  My favorite way to have goat curry is with roti but I also love it white rice! Scroll down for the video and enjoy!
