How to make Roganjosh

  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add the whole spices. Add thinly sliced onions to it and cook until golden brown .
  2. Add chopped tomatoes and cook until soft and mushy. Now add mutton, salt and saute (bhuno) until the colour of mutton changes.
  3. Add all the remaining spices, curd (whisked) and saute for 5 mins. Pour 1/2 glass of water and pressure cook on high for 1 whistle and simmer the flame for 2 more whistles.
  4. Allow the pressure to leave on itself, open the cooker and check the mutton.
  5. Add chopped coriander leaves and water for desired consistency of the gravy.
  6. Serve with plain rice or paratha.

My Tip:

The water content, pressure cooking time entirely depends on the quality of mutton and the pressure cooker, so use to your discretion.
