rogan Josh

It is believed that the roots of the Rogan Josh originated in Persia. It derives its name too from Persian words: Rogan which means “oil” and Josh means “intense heat”. The flavors and style have been brought in to India during the innumerable invasions it went through in the past.

The dish has been adapted to be made in various ways around the world. While any form of meat can be used in preparing it, but the traditional Kashmiri Rogan Josh is made with lamb or goat meat and flavored by the signature spices, such as asafoetida, fennel seeds and the dried ginger powder, along with a variation of combination of cinnamon, cardamom, and clove. Yogurt is added to add the slight tang and texture to the sauce. There are no tomatoes added to the traditional dish; not even to enhance color. Its characteristic brilliant red color traditionally comes from liberal amounts of dried Kashmiri chilies that have been de-seeded to reduce their heat.

Try this delectable aromatic, hot and deeply satiating curry with hot steamed rice or naan at Handi Restaurant, Jaipur, and make delicious memories.
