Shahi Rogan Josh

Published on: 11:19 am - Monday | September 11, 2017


Shahi Rogan Josh is an authentic Kashmiri easy-to-make recipe. Made with soft minced mutton, it is rich in clarified butter (ghee) and is filled with cashew nuts. This is a medium spiced recipe, though you can alter the spices a little as per your choice. The curd used in this recipe gives it a creamy texture while the dried red chili and green chili paste used in it gives the gravy a red colour. Shahi Rogan Josh is served hot with rice, tandoori rotis or naans.


300 gm mutton
1 1/2 cup yoghurt (curd)
12 piece cashews
4 1/2 tablespoon ghee
2 pinch saffron
1 1/4 tablespoon coriander powder
7 red chilli
3 medium onion
5 medium green chilli
8 clove garlic
1 1/4 teaspoon garam masala powder
4 medium tomato
1 1/4 inch ginger
1 1/4 tablespoon turmeric
1 1/4 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 cup water

How to make Shahi Rogan Josh

Step 1
Chop the green chilies, onions and tomatoes and keep them aside in seperate bowls. Mince the mutton and keep it in another bowl. Also, take a small bowl of water and soak the saffron in it.

Step 2
Grind turmeric powder, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, ginger, garlic, salt and red chillies together, making a thick paste.

Step 3
Place a deep pan on medium heat and put ghee in it. Add the chopped onions, green chilies and tomatoes and fry them till the ghee starts to separate. Then add the paste and minced mutton (keema) and stir well. Simmer the mutton for a few minutes.

Step 4
Now, beat the curd thoroughly using a beater or churner until it becomes smooth in texture. Add this curd and a cup of water into the pan and stir well. Cook the mutton till it becomes tender and the gravy gets thick.

Step 5
Once cooked, add garam masala, soaked saffron and cashwenuts to the mutton gravy. Stir again.

Step 6
Cover the pan and let the gravy and mutton cook for few minutes.

Step 7
Shahi Rogan Josh is now ready to be served hot. Garnish with lime wedge, green chilies and coriander leaves if you wish.
