Dish of the Week: Goat curry

This is an archived article that was published on in 2008, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

This curry ($12.99; thali meal, $14.99) is comfort food the world over.

The South Asian version is hearty and sophisticated at the same time with its comforting heft and clever use of freshly ground Indian spices.

Die-hards know that goat's flavor is totally different than that of lamb - deeper, gamier and suited to the spice-sultry, terra cotta-hued sauce. It's simmered until tender, bones and all, to coax out every bit of flavor. This result is worth the slightest extra effort.

Ganesh Indian Cuisine is at 777 E. Fort Union Blvd., Midvale; 801-569-3800. Hours are Monday, 5 to 10 p.m.; Tuesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., 5 to 10 p.m.
