Mutton Rogan Josh / Kashmiri Mutton Curry

You may be confused if you are searching for a rogan josh recipe in the net. The ingredients vary in each recipe, some use onions and tomatoes, some omit it , and some add garlic and others do not.. Even within the Kashmir itself , the recipes vary according to regions and traditions. (read it here) I added little onion to satisfy my self, but omitted tomato completely. I didn't get the ingredient 'Ratanjot' that Kashmiris used in their curries. Using asafoetida in a meat curry will make Keralites think 'strange' since we don't have any experience in using it other than using in a sambar, rasam or a pickle..

  1. That mutton curry looks spicy and inviting!

  2. I will have to try this one out, as I love a good rogan josh, but have never tried to make one myself. I wonder if i will be able to get asafoetida powder in the UK?
