    Rogan josh..A rich Kashmiri lamb Curry with Nuts

    For years I have cooked this Kashmiri Rogan josh from my recipe book which i got from my aunty long back. Though it took a good hour and a half to make, it was worth it, because every bit was polished off with relish by whomever it was served to, family or friends. If there ever were leftovers, they did not lasted beyond the next meal. 

                     Rogan josh is a gravy dish with moist spices and lot of fat floating around the meat ."Rogan" means oil or fat which comes from the meat itself. Josh means intense heat that goes while cooking this dish. Kashmiri dishes are known for having aromatic and sometimes spicy flavors, and some dishes often contain liberal amounts of oil which contributes to a richer, fuller mouth feel and flavour. Brown cardamom, green cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, mace, hing/asafoetida and saffron are the most commonly used spices in the making of a wide variety of dishes throughout Kashmir. Cumin seeds,coriander powder chilli powder, turmeric and bay leaves are also very popular Garam masala (aromatic spices) is a very popular blend of spices used in many kashmiri dishes. 

    The original recipe demanded fatty lamb meat but here i have used a leg of a lamb approximately 1 kg 100 grams very tender and less fatty meat,which produces the same and often better results with way less oil and much less effort. I have cooked it three times in the last month each time with different garnishing. First time i used almonds only as mentioned in the recipe and second time i have prepared this only with cashew nuts and the thirrd time i used both cashew and almonds for garnishing,but each time the favour and aroma was just the same.
