So after you stir a tablespoon of the paste with 125ml water what happens to the rest of the paste? Do you add it or keep it for another time? Hoping to make this tonight.

HI Samso, you can reserve the remaining paste for another time. Or if you like a stronger flavored, spicier curry you can add a little more them 1 tablespoon of the curry paste. Use the curry paste as per your taste preference. For some even the 1 tablespoon maybe too strong.

I think samina is covering for our chef. 1 tablespoon would be way to bland.He meant put OIL in first(olive with slice of butter)then all the paste.Cook till oil seperates from paste, about 3 minutes on high, Then drop your meat n cook on high for 5 minutes while stirring.Reduce to medium THEN add in the water with a little yogurt or better buttermilk.Then after 5 more minutes reduce to low n cook for 90 minutes. The slow cooking will bring out all the flavors of everyting in the pot especially the sweet flavor of perfectly cooked GOAT. Nothing from GOD..enjoy this version...b babu
