Just a little spicy. This version of the popular red lamb stew comes from the state of Rajasthan, known for its hilly deserts and fierce, yet chivalrous warriors. While Rogan Josh can be made with beef, it is traditional and better made with lamb. This blend is a great example of how a crafty seasoning can change the stronger flavor of lamb (or in India, mutton or goat) into a meal far more delicious than plain old beef. Some blends are interesting'this blend is delicious. For the true Jaipur Palace experience, use the full 2 TB. seasoning per pound, plus extra cayenne and cardamom. Either way you make it, don't plan on leftovers. Brown 2 lb. lamb or beef cubes in 4 TB. oil, remove. Brown 1 large minced onion, add 2-4 TB. Rogan Josh, 1 tsp. salt, stir. Add meat plus 1 cup water and 1/2 cup yogurt. Cook 1-2 hours over low heat till lamb is tender and sauce thick.
Hand-mixed from: paprika, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, pepper, cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and saffron.
