Rogan Josh is an authentic recipe from the beautiful paradise on earth called Kashmir. Kashmiri food is rich and infused with exotic spices…just like the place itself. The name Rogan Josh means a dark red curry traditionally made with mutton or ghosth as we call it in India, which is lamb meat.
Rogan is an ingredient that adds the red color to the gravy. However the version we make at home makes use of red Kashmiri chilli paste or powder. This gives the curry a dense red color.I am not too sure about the word Josh here, but its generic meaning is punch so I am assuming it means a curry with a punch and lots of spice.
I am sure there are lots of ways to make this curry but I haven’t found any Vegetarian versions. It is important that you have all these ingredients especially asafoetida and mustard to get the real flavour.
