Mutton Rogan Josh

Dear Readers,
Rogan Josh is a lamb dish of Persian origin. It is a signature Kashmiri cuisine and derives its name from the Persian words: Rogan, which means "oil" and Josh   means "intense heat". Thus, Rogan Josh means made in oil at intense heat. Hence I decided to prepare this special dish on my Mom's Birthday to surprise her.

So let's start with recipe.
