Known to have a Mughal origin and Persian influence, rogan josh makes an indispensable part of a traditional Kashmiri Wazwan (a multi-course celebratory feast). A quintessential rogan josh recipe includes fried mutton, braised in gravy that includes ginger, garlic, tomato, onion and sometimes, even yogurt. However, this particular recipe shared by Chef Rohra cuts the long story short!
Here, the mutton is pressure cooked beforehand with red chili powder, fennel powder, ginger powder, cumin powder, brown cardamom powder, green cardamom, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, cloves, and salt. All we have to do while cooking is, prepare a gravy with tomato and onion paste and add the already boiled mutton to it.
