Goat Meat Stew:

-2 ½ - 3 pounds of goat meat cut in small pieces (sub for veggie meat if preferred)

-1/4 cup cooking oil

-1 medium onion sliced

-1 tsp minced ginger

-1 tsp minced garlic

-4 diced Roma tomatoes

-3 to 4 tsp curry powder

-1 tsp garam masala

-1 tbsp Bouillon Maggie (optional)

Kalo (Millet Bread):

-1 cup millet flour

-¼ cup cassava flour

-3 cups of boiling water


Goat Meat Stew:

Step 1-

Boil goat meat with salt in a medium pot until tender. Drain and reserve the stock for later use.

Step 2-

Add oil to the pot/pan and brown the goat for about 5-10 minutes.

Step 3-

Add the chopped onions, ginger, and garlic.

Step 4-

Next, add diced tomatoes, and stir the pot frequently to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pot.

Step 5-

Add curry powder, salt and bouillon according to preference with about 2 cups of stock. Bring to a boil and let it simmer to blend all the flavors for approximately 30-40 minutes. Stir occasionally, adding water as needed.

Step 6-

Adjust seasonings and sauce consistency with water/stock and salt.

Step 7-

Serve warm with desired side dish. A common side dish is mixed vegetables.

Kalo (Millet Bread):

Step 1-

Mix 1 cup of millet flour with ¼ cup of cassava flour. Set aside for later.

Step 2-

Boil water. When boiled, separate two cups of water, leaving one additional cup on the side. You will need it when the kalo becomes too dry.

Step 3-

Incorporate the mixed millet and cassava flour into the remaining two cups of water. Add the third cup as needed.

Step 4-

Mix it with a mixing stick until it begins to change color and the flour is completely dissolved.

Step 5-

When the combination begins to get sticky, and when you can not see any more raw flour, then it is ready to be served.

Step 6-

Transfer the Kalo into a basket known as a ‘kibo’. Flour the kibo before transferring to ensure the Kalo doesn't stick.

Step 6-

Dip the Kalo into the stew. Enjoy!
