About Rogan Josh Curry

Rogan Josh is originally an aromatic lamb dish of Persian origin, which is one of the signature recipes of Kashmiri cuisine but we can confirm it also works well with chicken, lamb, beef or vegetables. Today, Rogan Josh remains popular in northern India and is also a staple menu item at Indian restaurants in North America and Europe. Its popularity in the Western world may be due partly to the fact that it is very flavourful but not intensely spicy. Even so, when asked, most restaurants will adjust the dish’s hotness to suit the diner’s palate. Often, Rogan josh is served with a side of plain or spiced basmati rice, the soft, flat dipping bread known as naan, or both. A large number of Rogan Josh variations exist. For instance, some cooks add finely chopped tomatoes or tomato puree to their recipes. Others include paprika in their spice mixture. These additions alter the dish’s taste and intensify its red colour.
