Jamaican Mutton Curry

Jamaican Mutton Curry

A warming and zingy Carribean alternative to Curry Goat.

This recipe has kindly been provided by chef Tom Welch of Wild Garlic


Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6-8 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp allspice (see step 1)
  • 1.2kg mutton dice
  • Salt
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1-2 habanero or Scotch bonnet peppers, seeded and chopped
  • A 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1-2 cans coconut milk
  • 1 can of tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp dried thyme
  • 50cl water
  • 5 Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

Method:

1 Make the curry powder. If you can find Jamaican curry powder,definitely use it. If not, use regular curry powder and add the allspice to it.You will need at least 6 tablespoons of spices for this stew, and you can kick it up to 8-9 depending on how spicy you like it.

2 Cut the meat into large chunks, maybe 2-3 inches across. If you have bones, you can use them, too. Salt everything well and set aside to come to  room temperature for about 30 minutes.

3 Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Mix in 2 tablespoons of the curry powder and heat until fragrant.

4 Pat the meat dry and brown well in the curried oil. Do this in batches and don’t overcrowd the pot. It will take a while to do this, maybe 30 minutes or so. Set the browned meat aside in a bowl. (When all the meat is browned, if you have bones, add them and brown them, too.)

5 Add the onions and habanero to the pot and sauté, stirring from time to time, until the onions just start to brown, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle some salt over them as they cook. Add the ginger and garlic, mix well and sauté for another 1-2 minutes.

6 Put the meat (and bones, if using) back into the pot, along with any juices left in the bowl. Mix well. Pour in the coconut milk and tomatoes and 5 tablespoons of the curry powder. Stir to combine. If you are using 2 cans of coconut milk, add the water. If you’re only using 1 can, add more water. Add the thyme. Bring to a simmer and let it cook until the meat isfalling-apart tender, which will take at least 2 hours. 

7 Once the meat is close to being done – tender but not falling apart yet– Add the potatoes and mix in. The stew is done when the potatoes are. Taste for salt and add some if it needs it.

8 You might need to skim off the layer of fat at the top of the curry before serving. Do this with a large, shallow spoon, skimming into a bowl.Also, be sure to remove any bones before you serve the curry.

The stew is better the day after, or even several days after the day you make it.
