Goat Curry in a Hurry (Instant Pot Recipe)


What’s better than slow-cooked goat curry? Goat curry that tastes slow-cooked but is actually made in a fraction of the time! Thanks to the instant pot, you can now make goat curry in a hurry 😉

Goat Curry - authentic Indian recipe by myheartbeets.com

It’s kind of surprising to me that one of my most popular recipes on the blog is my slow cooker goat curry. I honestly had no idea that so many of you eat and enjoy goat meat. I absolutely love it, and it really makes me happy to see that you all do too! I make my goat curry all the time, and while it’s definitely worth the wait… I’m an impatient girl.

I want a big bowl of goat curry that tastes slow-cooked… BUT I want it fast. I like my curry… in a hurry.

Since I want dinner on the table ASAP, I figure you guys do too – which is why I’m sharing my recipe for goat curry made in an Instant Pot, an electronic pressure cooker. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, I’m sure a regular pressure cooker will work just fine. The reason I love the Instant Pot is because I can saute the aromatics (onion, garlic, ginger, spices) and cook the curry all in one pot. It’s an amazing device that makes clean up a breeze.

“All I can say is wow! This was utterly delicious. And I’m looking forward to the next time I test drive one of your recipes.”


Can I use Onion Masala in this Recipe?

If you have my onion masala prepared, then use 1 cup of onion masala and omit the onions, tomatoes, ginger, and garlic in this recipe. Easy!

If you’re not familiar with my onion masala series, please read about it – it makes Indian cooking so much easier!

To make this goat stew even more comforting, I cut some potatoes in half and added them to the pot. It’s one of my favorite recipes to make during the colder months.

Make this the perfect meal by serving it with these tangy spiced potatoes also made in an Instant Pot and Indian flatbread or basmati rice.

Cuisine Indian


  • 2 tablespoons oil of choice I like avocado oil
  • 2 pounds bone-in goat or lamb pieces (shoulder or leg)
  • 2 onions diced
  • 1 ½ inch knob fresh ginger minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced



  • 2 14 ounce cans organic diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ pound potatoes leave whole, optional


  • Press the sauté button on the Instant Pot, and add the oil and goat meat to the pot. Once the outside of the meat begins to brown, add the onion, garlic, ginger and spices. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour in the diced tomatoes, water and potatoes if using.
  • Secure the lid, close the pressure valve and cook for 45 minutes at high pressure.
  • Allow the pressure to release naturally.
  • If you'd like for the dish to have a thicker consistency, press the sauté button to reduce or boil off extra liquid.


  • If you'd like to make this using my onion masala, use 1 cup of onion masala and omit the onion, ginger,  garlic, and tomatoes.

    Hi Ashley. I see that you’re slow cooker version says one can use boneless or bone in tote, whereas this instant pot version specifies bone in. Would boneless not do well with this version?

    Your quick goat curry in the instant pot was DEEEEEElicious! My first time buying goat and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it but this was so simple, fast and fool proof. I will be doing this again for sure – as well as visiting your site. Thank you.

    Improvised slightly….but after trying 6 recipes, finally found my base! Like the other 2nd gen Desi’s in the comments, haven’t had the confidence to host an Indian meal to my very ‘strict’ grandparents. Simple and delicious…thank you. 🙂

    I ended up making this! It was easy and WOW so tasty 😍 I follow a low fodmap diet so I only used 1/4 onion, and I didn’t have garam masala so I subbed it for keema masala. It was still so good!!! Thank you sharing this delicious recipe!

    I’ve (indian) been following you to make indian food for me and my partner (Caucasian). I’ve needed to go home to help my family as my mom has been sick lately. As food is my love language, I decided to be in charge of meals and cleaning the house. Last night I made this goat curry as well as your chicken kabob patties and your sweet and spicy tomato chutney. My dad, who is very particular with his goat meat (as we have a family recipe he barely ever strays away from) absolutely loved it along with the chicken kabobs I made the night before that with the tomato chutney.

    My anxiety with my family has gone down thanks to you and your recipes! <3

      Sukrit, this was such a sweet comment to read. First, I’m sorry to hear your mom isn’t feeling well, wishing her a speedy recovery. How sweet of you to cook for your parents – I’m so happy to hear that your dad loved the dishes you made! I also have an Indian dad who is very particular about food lol, so I always try to have him approve my recipes, especially my Punjabi/North Indian ones – rest assured they are dad-approved ha. Thanks for taking the time to leave this comment 🙂

    You have turned me into a superhero with this curry! I’m a white girl who married an Indian, and I needed a good curry recipe for my in-laws. This goat curry blew us all away! Thank you ❤️
