Hi friends, welcome back to my blog. Today I am going to share the recipe of making delicious and spicy Goat head curry. This is a no fail recipe and comes out perfect every time I make it. This recipe is very much similar to my earlier recipe of Mutton Paaya/Goat trotters curry. 

Goat head or Sira ka salan tastes best with wheat flour chapathi or String hoppers/ Idiyappam.

Let's move to the recipe of making Goat head curry at home.


Goat head about 16 pieces
4 tbsp oil
1 cardamom
1 cinnamon
1 onion finely sliced
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 ½ tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
3 large tomatoes pureed
½ cup chopped coriander leaves
3 tbsp coconut paste
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 tsp lemon juice
6 to 8 cups water (depending on how thick you want the curry to be)

To clean the goat head
1/2 cup wheat flour

  • Take wheat flour/ Atta in a bowl and add the goat head pieces into it. Mix well and rub the pieces one by one with flour. This step helps in removing all the hair or any impurities from the goat head pieces.
  • Then rinse well with water.
  • Soak the pieces in clean water for at least 2 hours. This step makes the pieces get puffed up and well cooked.
  • To prepare the Sira curry/ Goat head curry curry, heat oil in a pressure cooker, add cardamom, cinnamon and onions and saute till the onions turn golden.
  • Then add ginger and garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes.
  • Add red chilli powder, garam masala powder, tomato puree and cook for a few minutes till oil starts separating.
  • Now add the Goat head pieces, coriander leaves, coconut paste, salt, lemon juice and water.
  • Bring the curry to a boil, close the pressure cooker lid and cook for about 15 minutes or 13 to 14 whistles.
  • Open the lid and check for taste. Add salt or pinch of pepper powder if necessary. 
  • Also check if the goat head pieces are well cooked and soft. If not, close the lid again and cook for 5 to 6 more whistles. 
  • Allow the steam to escape and transfer the Curry to a serving bowl.
  • Serve hot with Paratha, Chapathi or String Hoppers.
