Mutton Rogan Josh

'Mutton Rogan Josh' is a very popular North Indian  delicacy. It is basically originated in Kashmir and the original recipe derives its name from Kashmiri red chilli's and literally means 'Red Lamb'. There are lot of variations  made in this recipe depending on the region where it is prepared. Here I have made a small variation by adding cream in the preparation which is usually  found in various Punjabi dhaba and restaurants. Its gives a creamy color  and consistency to the dish which makes it more delicious.


1 kilo
Onion finely chopped
1 cup
Ginger paste
2 tbsp
Garlic paste
2 tbsp
kashmiri red chilly powder
1 tsp
Cumin seeds
1 tsp
Garam masala powder
1 tsp
Coriender powder
2 tbsp
Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp
Cumin powder
Black pepper corns
6 to 8
Bay leaves
Green cardamom
6  to 8
5 stickds
white cream
2 tbsp
As per taste
Chopped coriender leaves

Mustard oil


1.    Wash mutton properly and cut into medium size pieces. Now in a bowl mix mutton with curd and little salt, and keep aside for at least 2 hours.
2.     Heat oil in a pan and add bay leaves and whole spices like cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, cardamom, peppercorn and clove. When they starts crackle add chopped onion and fry until it turns golden yellow. Now add ginger garlic paste and fry for a couple of minutes.
3.  Add turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder and little water. Fry the masala until oils gets separated from it. Now add marinated mutton and fry with masala for   to 5 minutes in high flame. Now reduce the flame and add 2 cups of water,  garam masala  powder, and little salt as we have already added while marinating the mutton. Now cover it with a lid and let it cook  until  the mutton becomes tender and the consistency of gravy becomes medium thick.
4.     When the mutton pieces are well cooked  add cream and stir and cook again for about 3 minutes.

            Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot with Rice, Roti, Naan or Parathas.
            Enjoy this restaurant style Mutton Rogan josh at home.
