How to make Mutton Rogan Josh

  3. Add marinated mutton pieces and fry on medium flame till mutton pieces turn a nice reddish brown colour. Stir it time to time that it does not stick to the pan.
  4. Sprinkle a little water and continue to cook on low heat. Add Kashmiri red chilli powder, fennel powder, dry ginger powder, coriander powder and salt.
  5. Add remaining yoghurt and 1/2 cups of water, mix and stir. Cover it with a lid and allow it to cook till tender, on a low flame.
  6. Open the lid, put garam masala, ghee and boil for 2 minutes. Switch off the heat, transfer into a serving bowl, garnish with mint leaves.
  7. Serve hot with steamed rice or Kashmiri pulao.
My Tip: I marinate the mutton, in this way, mutton becomes very soft.
