While the curry is cooking, peel and cut the potatoes into 1 inch cubes.
Once the goat meat is tender, add in the potatoes, turn the heat up to medium, and cook for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, add in the coconut milk and simmer again for another 10 minutes. Serve the curry goat with boiled rice or with roti.
The curry goat is garnished with cilantro for picture purposes, but this is optional
The water level may need to be adjusted during the cooking process if the heat is too high, and the water dries up. Make sure the water in the curry sauce is not dried up.
