Goat Curry with Cracked Rice and Peas

Goat Curry with Cracked Rice and PeasThis African style goat meat is spicy and goes so well with cracked rice preparation. The same ingredients can be used to prepare chicken curry. Generally, short grain cracked rice is used for this recipe but you can use regular long grain rice too. And, if you prefer, you can omit rice replacing it with regular naan or bread. If you don't prefer to use red chilies, use white pepper or green chilies to add the required zing. Beef and lamb meat can also be prepared using the same method. Leftovers of this meat can be either included in a stew or can be mixed with a rich rice preparation. My family members love to eat this recipe with piping hot boiled rice. Let's make this aromatic and scrumptious meat recipe.
