Eddie Campbell shows John Torode how to bring the sunshine taste of the Caribbean to a traditional curry


1. Wash the meat under cold running water and cut into small chunks. Heat the vegetable oil in a large lidded frying pan, seal the meat until browned all over, add the onions and fry until golden-brown.

2. Add the thyme, garlic, spring onions, scotch bonnet pepper, curry powder, tomato ketchup, ginger, salt, freshly ground black pepper and water to cover, and put the lid on.

3. Simmer until nearly tender (about 1 hour - 1 hour 30 minutes).

4. Add carrots and potato to the pan and simmer for a further 10 minutes, or until the meat, carrots and potato are all tender. Serve with Jamaican rice and peas.

This tasted great but it wasn't very curry flavoured. More like a mutton stew with a bit of a kick. I will probably do again but might increase the curry flavours next time. A great dish either way though.

Fantastic recipe. Have made it several times now. Best tip would be to buy goat fillet. In Australia, many places (Indian shops) sell frozen goat meat on the bone but most of the weight is in the bone so you have to buy more. My butcher ordered the goat fillet in for me.

You can use any curry powder, I use madras as it is stronger
