Rogan Josh - Penzeys

Total Time

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.

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.

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. July 16, 2015

I don't get it but this had no flavor at all. the Penzey's Rogan Josh is *hot*, so adding more didn't make it more flavorful, it just made it hotter. I added Penzey's Garam Marsala and Tandoori spice and it got a little bit better, but I'm going to have to find a better way to use my Penzey's Rogan Josh.
