MUTTON ROGAN JOSH 


Mutton rogan josh considered to be a dish from the Kashmiri cuisine and originating from 

Persia is an aromatic and rich dish .Get’s along well with chappathis,parathas,rotis,and any 

lightly flavoured pulaos,or plain rice.For the rich color Kashmiri chillies or powder has to be

Compulsorily used.I like to prepare this dish with Mutton chops ,or the meat first slightly 

roasted to seal the juices .The meat lightly fried in ghee and tossed in to the curry , gives 

excellent flavour .This recipe has slight changes compared to the traditional recipe.The same 

recipe can be tried with chicken or any other meat too.Anyway ,let me share this recipe with
