Method

 
Mix the goat, garlic and ginger mix, green marsala, red marsala, salt, turmeric, medium marsala and cumin and coriander powder together and set aside to marinate.

Fry the chopped onion in the oil and ghee until translucent. Add the star anise, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. Fry for 3-5 minutes.

Add the goat and brown the meat. Then add the chopped tomatoes and curry leaves. Let it simmer closed on medium heat for about 50 minutes. Stir now and then – add a little water if you see the sauce gets too dry.

After 50 minutes add the beans with the “juice”- and simmer for another 20 minutes.

Taste for seasoning – or if you so prefer, add more chillies. Sprinkle with fresh coriander just before serving.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
