How to Make Lamb Rogan Josh

HideShow Media
Heat the oil in a heavy based pan.
Tip in the cassia bark, bay leaves and cardamoms. When they sizzle (make sure they don't burn, if they do, discard whole spices and repeat the process) add the garlic and the onions followed by the butter and fry till the onions are nicely caramelized.
This will take about 10 minutes. It may be longer if you're frying more onions.
Add the turmeric, chilli powder, cumin and coriander and mix for about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato puree and mix.
Add the lamb and fry for 5 to 7 minutes till it changes colour or turns opaque.
Pour 400ml of just boiled water, cover and simmer for 40 minutes till the meat is tender.
Remove the lid and add the salt and sprinkle the garam masala. Stir in the lemon juice.
Just before serving you could garnish with washed and chopped coriander leaves (if you're freezing or serving the next day, don't add the leaves).
If you want to make the sauce thicker, cook the curry further.
If you want more sauce, add an extra 200 ml of water.
The oil should rise to the top of the saucepan, which means the curry is ready.
Serve hot.
