MUTTON ROGAN JOSH
Declared by Vir Sanghvi as the ‘Greatest Indian Curry’ – Mutton Rogan Josh is a curry and a lot more – it is the centerpiece of a Kashmiri feasting table, it is an amalgamation of Persian and ancient Indian cooking techniques and it is a celebration of simple but very robust flavours. The choicest cuts of meat from the shoulder and thigh are first sautéed with the quintessential Kashmiri Pandit spice mix of cardamom, cumin, ginger powder, heeng, fennel and red chillies in a generous amount of ghee. Water is then added and meat slow cooked. The final step is stirring in a ladle full of yoghurt which rounds off the flavours and deepens the colour of the gravy. Best enjoyed with steamed rice.
