When I was at home, I normally helped my mom cooking. In London I started cooking for myself by recalling my mom’s recipes in my mind. Here I give you a traditional Burmese goat curry.
I hope you will enjoy this very delicious curry. It goes very well with rice or nan bread and salad, with baby spinach or lettuce, cucumber, white or black pepper, a pinch of salt and lemon.
And if you're not a fan of goat then you can always try this with lamb or beef.
If you give this a try let us know how you get on.
