Ravishing Rogan Josh - Most popular blend and also our award winning one. Our wonderfully warming, totally authentic version of this famous Kashmiri dish. Naturally, we rely upon the beautiful Rattan Jyoth bark and Kashmiri chillies to achieve its distinctive red colour the traditional way - as your curry bubbles away in the pot, you'll see the bark releasing deep red undertones which combine with the earthy yet zingy spices, including pungent asafoetida, fragrant green cardamoms and cinnamon, to create possibly the finest Rogan Josh you've ever tried - we really are that confident.
Made in Ireland.

3. Stir in the garlic and ginger and fry for a couple of minutes.
4. Add the lamb cubes and fry for a further 15 minutes.
5. Add half the yoghurt, tomatoes and sugar. Simmer on a low heat with the lid off for 30 minutes.
6. Finally, increase the heat and stir. Then add in the water or stock, the remaining yogurt and cook on a gentle heat until the lamb is tender. (approx. 1½hrs) …simple!
Sprinkle with freshly chopped coriander and serve with Indian Basmati rice
Try replacing the lamb with 1kg/2lbs of chicken breast cut into mouth-size pieces, but first cook the sauce for about one and a half hours then add the chicken and only cook for about a further 20 minutes otherwise the chicken will be really tough.
