Rogani Gosht (Lamb Braised in Yogurt and Cream) Recipe

Rogani Gosht (Lamb Braised in Yogurt and Cream)

Mamtha Sunil Kumar

Recipe by  

Rogani Gosht (Lamb Braised in Yogurt and Cream) - often referred to in the West as Rogan Gosht or even Rogan Gosh - is an authentic Mughlai dish and its recipe dates back to before the 18th century. Rogani Gosht was a favourite dish of the Mughal emperors served in the main course of their lunch. Traditionally made, the meat was cooked on hot charcoal overnight. Here I have shared the same secret that doesn't take all that long but, in terms of tenderness and taste, will take you back to the 18th century.

How to Cook Rogani Gosht (Lamb Braised in Yogurt and Cream)

  1. Peel and roughly chop the onions then combine all the ingredients except the lamb and potatoes in an electric blender or food processor and process until smooth. Cut the lamb into 2" (5cm) cubes and place these, along with the yogurt-cream mixture into a large, heavy pot (preferably non-stick). Bring to a boil over moderate heat then cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce the heat and simmer very gently for 2 hours.
  2. Check the stew and stir frequently, add in a little milk or water as needed if the sauce becomes too thick. Meanwhile, peel and quarter the potatoes. After 2 hours, add the potatoes to the Rogani Gosht and continue cooking gently for a further 30 to 45 minutes until they are tender. Serve hot.

 
Mamtha Sunil Kumar MAMTHA SUNIL KUMAR'S HOT TIP:
Using a tight-fitting lid on your pan and simmering gently is the most important step of this dish since the lamb has to absorb all the wonderful flavours of the spices.
