Mutton Rogan Josh - made on 4th Feb, 2012

What did I use:

Goat meet: 750gm
Asafoetida:1.5 tbsp
Dry spice powders - Dried ginger powder, fennel seed powder, coriander seed powder: 1 tbsp each
Kashmiri red chilli powder: 2 tsps
Grated ginger: 1 tsp
Ratanjot 3pcs soaked in hot water
Whole garam masala:
Cinnamon: a 2" piece
Cloves 8pcs
Black Cardamom 4pcs & green cardamom 3pcs
Black peppercorn 6 pcs
Yogurt ¾ cup (kept it in room temperature)
Oil 4 tbsp
Salt to taste

How did I cook:

Before starting the cooking, heat fresh water and pour ¾ Ratanjot into that water for soaking.
Heat oil and add the whole garam masala, sauté for 30 seconds. Add 3/4 tsp of asafoetida and sauté another 30 seconds.
Add 1 tsp of red chilli powder and immediately add the meat, stirring till the pieces are evenly browned on all sides. The meat will leave water, keep stirring till all the water has dried up. This will take about 12-15 minutes. Then add that hot water where Ratanjot were soaked.
Meanwhile, whisk all the dry spice powders into the yogurt and add this to the lamb after the water has dried up. Stir till the yogurt has dried up and the masala coats the meat.
Add 2 cups of warm water, the grated ginger, the remaining asafoetida and the salt. Cover and cook on a very low flame till the meat is tender.
Once the meat is cooked, add in the remaining red chili powder, increase the heat and bring to a rapid boil.
Your gravy will now look a fiery red with a thin film of oil on top.
Cover and let the curry rest for a couple of hours so that all the flavors get infused into the meat.
