Rogan Josh

    
 Rogan Josh

             Rogan Josh is a authentic mutton gravy prepared in Jammu Kashmir state. This dish is prepared in two ways in kashmir, where Kashmiri Muslims use onions and garlic and Kashmiri hindu avoid using onions and garlic. Traditionally whole red chillies are used in place of chilies powder and give lovely red colour to your gravy.
         Kashmiri cuisine has had the earliest influence on Kashmiri Pandit cuisine. Usually, Pandits do not eat meat, however the Pandits of Kashmir have always eat all meats except beef. Beef is strictly forbidden in Pandit cuisine and in Kashmiri Muslim cuisine. 

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 ~ 40 minutes
Serves: 3 ~ 4
Adapted from here

Ingredients:
1 lb / 500 grams mutton
1 tsp kashmiri red chilly powder ( I added curry powder, If you add kashmiri chilli powder, it gives nice red color to the gravy)
1/2 tsp garam masala powder 
1/2 tsp ginger powder 
1 tbsp coriander powder 
1/4 tsp turmeric powder 
1/4 cup curd
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander for garnish 

For Seasoning:
3 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp cumin powder 
1/2 tsp black pepper corns 
6 cloves 
3 green cardamom 
2 inch cinnamon stick
Few threads of mace 

Method: 
1. Heat oil in a pressure pan and put all seasoning ingredients. When they start to crackle, add  mutton pieces. Fry for few minutes. Say 5 ~ 7 minutes. Stir in between.
3. Add all the masala powders to the mutton. Mix and fry till the oil separates from the mixture . 
4. Add curd and stir continuously to avoid curdling of the curd. Add water and salt. Cover the pan with lid. Place the weight and cook the meat for 3 ~ 4 whistle or meat becomes tender.     
5.When steam drops, open the lid and cook the gravy to medium or required consistency. Adjust salt and spice to taste. Add cream and stir well and cook for about 5 more minutes. Garnish with cilantro.
