Rogan Josh (Lamb Curry) - A Favourite

Updated on December 27, 2012

Rogan Josh (Lamb Curry) - a Favourite.

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Curries are such complex and exciting departures from western style cooking. These days most people are familiar with Indian curries and have a basic understanding of the process of cooking. We can find pasts, spice mixes, pickles and chutneys freely available in our supermarkets and recipes are abundant. Traditional methods using whole spices and preparing spice mixes can be time-consuming and I find that as long as the ground spices are fresh, the results are excellent.

Having spent many years in the industry, importing and selling spices, blends, pasts, chutney and pickles to restaurants in Sydney, Australia, I collected many books and recipes that have long please my own family. In the process I have developed my own recipes and offer my own take on the classic Rogan Josh. I hope you enjoy it.
