Rogan Josh is my absolute FAVORITE Indian dish!! This is a twist on the lovely recipe. I found this at The meatballs can be made up to 2 days in advance - just cover and refrigerate.

  1. In a large bowl combine lamb, cilantro, 2 teaspoons of ginger, cumin, salt, cinnamon, black pepper and 3 of the garlic cloves; mix until well blended.
