Mutton Rogan Josh

Persian women are HOT but the person who can cook Persian food is hotter which in today's case is me. Take out your mutton and learn.

What I will tell you all today is Rogan Josh. A Persian dish made with mutton and rich in tomatoes and various spices.

Rogan Josh is a Persian dish inspired from Kashmiri and Mughal cultures.

This was also my very first recipe for this blog which I made again after a long time for some special guests today.

Stay tuned to my twitter and facebook page which is for a recap of Eid-ul-Azha


500 grams mutton

salt as per taste

1 tablespoon of crushed whole spice (pissa hua garam masala)

2 tablespoon milk cream (aise hee aap log whitening cream daal dein toh kon zimahdaar hai)

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 finely chopped onion

Juice of 1 lemon


1 teaspoon fennel seeds (saunf)

8 green chilies

2 teaspoons ginger & garlic paste

1 1/2 teaspoons red chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons coriander powder

1 onion

2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves

Start off with tenderizing your meat by adding 2-3 glasses of water in a pressure cooker. Add the meat to it and let the whistle blow for 12-15 minutes.

You can boil the meat if you feel like but I had guests at home so time was not to mess around with.

Meanwhile the meat tenderizes. Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Add the chopped onion and crushed garam masala. Fry till golden brown.

Meanwhile the onions are frying you can make the paste by adding onion, fennel seeds, coriander powder, red chili powder, ginger & garlic paste and chopped coriander leaves.

Add the paste you made and salt. Fry well for 4-5 minutes. FRY IT PROPERLY OKAY.

Now after 12-15 minutes the mutton is done tenderizing.

Add the tender mutton cover it well with the paste and then add tomato paste with water.

NOTE - If the mutton after tenderizing has water left in the pressure cooker then add it with the mutton and do not add water after adding tomato paste.

Cover the lid and cook the mutton until the gravy reduces and oil separates.


Take the lid off after 5 minutes or when the oil separates.

Add fresh cream and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. 

Mix it well and cook for 5 more minutes on high heat.

Mutton Rogan Josh is ready and let's dish it out now.

Here you go everyone. Try this and I bet you are going to love it more than you love your siblings. Eat it with naan, paratha and your hands.

Don't forget to comment.
