Mutton Rogan Josh | Two ways to make Mutton Rogan josh

Mutton Rogan Josh is one of the signature recipes of Kashmiri cuisine. This is an aromatic curried dish, which is traditionally made with lamb or goat meat.

In this post, I am sharing two ways to make Mutton Rogan Josh Recipes, both Kashmiri Pandit and Muslim style. I will not call this recipe authentic because I have not used the same method and have skipped some ingredients, like Ratan jot, which gives this recipe nice red color. However, these recipes turned out so delicious. We tried to experiment with a vegetarian version of Rogan josh paneer, mushroom, cauliflowers, chickpeas, and lotus root with the same method.

Let’s talk about what Rogan Josh is: It is a deep red spicy lamb/goat curry dish of Persian origin. It was brought to Kashmir by the Mughals. This dish has a thin red-colored gravy and a thick layer of ghee on top. The main spices for the curry are hing, fennel seed powder, dry ginger powder, Kashmiri red chili, coriander powder, and garam masala.

Now, Let’s talk about what is different between Kashmiri Pandit and Muslim style recipe- The only difference between these two recipes is Kashmiri Pandit don’t use onion and garlic. However, Muslim style recipe does use those.
