Kashmiri Mutton Rogan Josh
Credit: Gurgaon Foodie

Rogan Josh means cooked in oil at intense heat. Another interpretation of the name Rogan Josh is derived from the word “Rogan” meaning “red color” (the same Indo-European root that is the source of the French “rouge” and the Spanish “rojo”) and “Josh” meaning passion or heat. Great for getting all the flavour out of your mutton chops.
