Mutton Rogan Josh (Kashmiri)

DSCN4996
Rogan Josh is an aromatic lamb dish of Persian origin which later became the signature dish of ” kASHMIRI CUISINE”.You must be wondering how i jumped from Hyderabad flavours to Kashmir cuisine abruptly. Just one reason behind it . and that is, i’m gonna be living in J&K for the next few years. This is a part of preparing my mind to accept and enjoy the region with its rich flavours. My hubby is already bribing me with Kashmiri silk and hand-made embroideries to accompany him to Jammu.He describes about the landscape , Saffron , Pure basmati rice and the beautiful cottage where we will be living for summer in the Summer capital , Srinagar.:)
I thought of doing my bit by cooking a Kashmiri dish to make my family ready to move to this beautiful place with a fresh mind .Rogan Josh means cooked in ghee or clarified butter at intense heat.

2. Heat ghee in a thick bottomed vessel . Add the meat into the heated ghee in slow flame.Add salt to taste., Cook the meat until it gets roasted to golden brow colour.
3. Take a bowl and add the hing first. Now add Kashmiri red chilli powder,dry ginger powder, fennel seed powder ,saffron and make a watery paste by adding some water.
4. Add this watery paste to the already roasted mutton.
5. Pour 3 glasses of water into the mutton and cook in slow flame for 1 hour. ( If you are in a hurry, u can even cook it in pressure cooker. 6 whistles., Once cooked , transfer it into a pan for further cooking for better taste)
6.Now add the garam masala powder (which you have already powdered in the first step) to the mutton and cook for another 30 minutes. Add some more water if necessary.

Hii, I'm Saritha who is finding it extremely difficult to write a paragraph about myself . I have already written few lines and deleted them too as some where i was sounding a bit underconfident or some times a bit too boasty. I don't like to be either of them as i believe that finding a balance between the above mentioned is the blissful state of mind which i always would prefer to be in.I am trying my best here to give you a clear idea about myself ;)
I belong to God's own country, Kerala and i am a big fan of the cuisine of the state . Professionally i'm a mentor of young minds . As i am married to an Indian air force Pilot, i had been living in various parts of the country. I would love to call myself and my hubby as avid travellers as that's one thing which thrills me and lifts up my mood drastically from 'being balanced yet a little boring ' to 'extremely enthusisatic'.I have two sons (a deadly combination to handle) Aditya 13 and Aarush 7 who are choosy in eating like most of the kids. I love my travels and it gives me amble exposure to taste various cuisines within and outside the country. Socializing and parties have always been a part of our Airforce life and who would not like to see the smile on your guest's face after tasting your food. That's how i started cooking and tasting and experimenting.I had seen he days where i found" breaking an egg without creating a mess" as my life's biggest challenge.(lol ;) ).But past few years in cooking has made me realise that it isn't Rocket science.
List of people who can make use of my blog
1. Newly married brides who are struggling with masalas and utensils.
2. Any one who wants to try out something new and exceptional . ( i knw i knw, here i'm a littlt boasty)
3.Bachelor / forced bachelor boys who has developed acidity due to over indulgence in restaurants .Now it's time to cook a meal for yourselves guys. As i said, it's not rocket science.
4. Any one who loves me . Muah....
Go Ahead.... Try out my recipes and Enjoyyyy....
