Harsh, your recipe is good, but its just a glorified mutton curry and not 'rogan josh'.

My apology to all. With my increasing knowledge about food, I feel my recipe is NOT A AUTHENTIC. This recipe is another mutton curry but not Rogan Josh.

Why isn't rattanjog mentioned in the among the ingredients? the recipe has a very thin gravy and cream no way..

The recepie is no where near the authentin Rogan Josh. Rogan josh is flavoured with 'Ratan jote' which is a dry bark of a tree found in Kashmir Valley which gives it the color along with Kashmiri Chillies and saffron. Cream no way!!!!

I cooked the Mutton Rogan Josh without adding the white cream. I also used half the amount of garlic and ginger paste suggested in the recipe. I don't care whether Harsh was being authentic or not. The result was astounding. Thanks Harsh! Keep it Up!

It is far from actual Rogan Josh. And Rogan Josh does not mean Red Lamb. The actual kashmiri dish of red chillies is "Marchewaangunn kourma", which primarily is red chillies. Rogan Josh, is NOT hot and definitely not with thick gravy. Josh stands for Heat (not chillies)
