Instant Mutton Rogan Josh | Pressure Cooker Lamb Rogan Josh | How to cook Rogan Josh - Curry for the Soul

Friends, please try this Mutton Rogan Josh which is a Kashmiri delicacy and a popular Indian restaurant dish and don't forget to comment, like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.

Mutton (lamb) Rogan Josh is an aromatic lamb dish of Persian origin, which is one of the signature recipes of Kashmiri cuisine. It is also one of the Indian restaurant popular dish. This dish is packed with flavours.

Rogan Josh means mutton (lamb) cooked in clarified butter. I have cooked the mutton in pressure cooker to save the time.

After cooking the mutton, I have added the dry spices which includes aniseeds powder, dry ginger powder and asafoetida in addition to the regular aromatic whole spices like cinnamon, black and green cardamoms, cloves, cumin, etc. and added yogurt for that buttery soft Rogan Josh flavours.

Its characteristic brilliant red colour comes from the use of liberal amount of dried Kashmiri chillies and paprika.
