Curried Goat Meat with Potatoes - Aloo Ghost

Last week i read this article by on Hindustan Times Brunch by Vir Sanghvi titled Whose Goat is it anyway ? In this article author has clearly stated that the meat cooked in  Indian restaurents is goat meat but the chef are reluctant to admit or to even write in the menu card just because they dont want to offend foreigners so instead of goat meat they write lamb meat  ,i have tried lamb meat but i never liked the taste so when i discovered that fresh goat meat is available in Singapore thanks to Teeka Market i was really elated,,,;-)since then i have really enjoyed cooking  curried goat meat in various ways then i read some months back that red meat is not good for health ,but after reading the above mentioned  article  my belief has changed ,article states that goat meat is sustainable meat from animals that thrive on pasture and a pound of goat meat has two third the calories of a pound of beef and goat has half the saturated fat of chicken.

Another article which i read today in Today Online states that eating curry once or twice a week could stave off Dementia .Article further states that Curcumin  chemical found in Turmeric helps in fighting Alzheimer Disease .Other health benefit of Turmeric is it aids digestion ,helps fight infection and guards against heart attack.Today while cooking this curry i accidentaly added turmeric powder as it was not needed ,that time i recalled the article which i had read in the morning,..;-)
Coming back to todays post sharing with you all
