Rogan Josh Curry Starter explores the distinctive cuisine and flavors of the Kashmir region of India. Warm spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cumin, and coriander combine with bold Kashmiri chile powder, lending this flavor packed curry its bright red hue.
Rogan Josh is one of Kashmir’s signature dishes that was brought to the region by way of Persia from The Mugahls, a Central Asian empire that ruled a majority of both India and Pakistan in the 16th and 17th centuries. “Rogan” translates to “clarified butter or oil” in Persian and to “red” in Hindi, and the word “josh” refers to “passion.” The preparation and nature of the stew reflect these translations, as the sauce is oil-based and prepared over intense heat. Traditionally, Rogan Josh consists of lamb or goat slow-cooked in oil, yogurt, and various warm spices. Despite the dish’s intense red color, it’s not a particularly spicy curry. Therefore, it can be enjoyed by everyone at the dinner table, including those with more sensitive spice palates.
