Contains a whole spice pouch, a base sauce and a stir-in sauce
Rogan Josh has its roots in Kashmir, where it was traditionally made simply with oil, freshly pounded spices, yoghurt, fresh lamb and a natural red food colouring. However, as the dish left its home, it morphed into a heartier lamb curry and went from a regional favourite to a national one.
Whilst our Rustic Rogan Josh nods to its original roots, it has added zing and depth. Our Rogan Josh is perfect for less expensive, more flavourful cuts of lamb, but also works with mince and other quicker-cooking cuts. Why is it rustic? Refined sauces are often passed through a sieve for a finer, less textured sauce. Our Rogan Josh is full of wonderful little textures that burst with flavour as you bite into little chucks of tomato, ginger, coriander and other delicious ingredients.
Cut the meat, fish or paneer cheese into generous pieces.
If you don’t like whole spices, powder these in a pestle and mortar and add them in at the end of step 3. Alternatively if left whole remove them with a spoon before serving.
Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan, add the spices and cook for 20 seconds.
Add the meat, brown lightly for 2-3 minutes, add the base sauce and simmer for 2 minutes.
Stir in the main sauce and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until the meat is cooked through (1-1¼ hours for shoulder and leg and 30-35 minutes for mince).
Use these handy tips to customise your dish;
Cook a vegetable along with the meat - try aubergine, spinach, peas or potatoes (some may need to go in before the lamb)
Fry (pierced) whole green chillies or julienned ginger in the oil before you add the base sauce for extra zing and flavour
For an elegant meal cook 2 lamb shanks in the sauce and finish with a little cream
Pour in extra watre when slow - cooking meat
Add fresh chopped coriander before serving.
