The steps to achieving this stellar dish:

Make a paste by putting the onion, garlic and ginger in a food processor. In a pan heat the oil or ghee, add the paste and allow it to gently cook for about 5 mins, allowing it to become soft. To the pan add the chillies (optional), thyme, curry powder/turmeric and salt to taste. Allow this to cook for 2-3 mins, it will become very fragrant. Remove the paste from the pan.

Add the goat to the pan and cook for about 5 mins or until the meat is nicely browned. Bring the paste back to the pan and add the diced tomatoes and beef stock. Turning the heat up, bring the pan to the boil. After 10 mins of boiling, reduce the heat, put a lid on the pan and allow it to simmer away gently for roughly 2_ hrs. Be sure to take off the lid for the final 30 mins of cooking.

Once cooked, remove from the heat, add in the still warm pre-cooked sweet potato pieces and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Next, add the lemon juice and coriander and stir well.

Serve this rich, aromatic curry with warmed roti and/or rice.
