About Mutton Rogan Josh Recipe

Traditionally this dish is slow cooked using heavy bottom pan or utensil on a low flame for 45-50 minutes using curd and lots of spices. In this recipe, I cooked meat using presser cooker which took me 20-25 minutes for cooking. Again, depending on the freshness of the meat. Fresh meat requires lesser time for cooking than the frozen. Taste was amazing and meat was cooked well and all the garam masala flavors was there in the cooked meat.
