Rogan Josh (Roghan Josh)

I tasted this delightful Reddish thick Mutton Gravy in Karachi Darbar, Dubai, for the first time, few years ago. I fell in love with this Kashmiri wonder Mutton Gravy instantly. This thick gravy is not so spicy-made but a delicious mix of done onion-tomato puree with kashmiri Red chilli powder and paparika and other specified spices with the meat.Rogan Josh(Roghan Josh) is an aromatic lamb dish of Kashmir and intoduced by the Mughals. Rogan means ' Oil' or 'Red or hot'. Hence the gravy is in rich red colour and non- spicy too.If U do the Onion-tomato separately and add it into the dish,then this tastes  better.  It can be done in 20 -25 mins using pressure-pan and serves 4-6 nos. Enjoy this homely version of Rogan josh with Steamed Rice or Naan or Roti or other Indian Breads. Enjoy Delightful Dishes at home!. Enjoy ur meal!. BonAppetit!.

Lovely recipe. Was wondering if the use of ratan jot for this is not practised any more. I have tried searching for it in Hyderabad but have failed. I remember my brother getting it from Chitpur market in Kolkata. I do not see too many recipes asking for it either, and neither does yours. If anyone knows where I can get ratan jot in hyderabad, please leave a comment, it would be great.
