Recipe by riflmom

This is my version of the recipe printed on the Penzeys Spices bag of Rogan Josh. It's spicy and savory - the ingredients on the label are: paprika, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, Tellicherry black pepper, cayenne pepper, Korintje cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, saffron.

I personally prefer less yogurt, but this is a great version of the recipe. I love the Rogan Josh from Penzey's and find it works with both lamb and goat meat very well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut meat into stew-sized cubes, brown in fat (do this in batches to avoid steaming the meat). Remove meat, but leave all the drippings and oil.
  2. Brown the onion in the same pan. Add Rogan Josh and salt, stir for one minute.
  3. Return meat to pan along with any juices that have accumulated in the bowl. Slowly blend in water and yogurt.
  4. Cook 1-2 hours over low heat. At the end, raise heat to reduce sauce until thickened (you may add a small amount of cornstarch disolved in water.).
  5. This would probably work well in a pressure cooker.
  6. Serve with roasted potatoes, or over rice or noodles.
