Lamb Rogan Josh4.1/5 (BASED ON 1147 reviews)
This Kashmiri dish is one of the most popular of the classic North Indian curries. Rogan Josh – which translates roughly as “red juice” describes the way the red colour from the Kashmiri chillies infuses the oil, creating a red coloured sauce. Normally a slow cooked dish where lamb is braised in oil, tomatoes and spices, our quick version sears lamb leg steaks which are then returned to the fragrant curry just before serving.

Our 30 minute recipe
Start the curry
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the onion for 8 mins, or until golden.
Add the ginger and fry for 2 mins.
Add the ROGAN JOSH PASTE and 1 tbsp water and fry for 1 min.
Add the GARLIC PASTE and 1 more tbsp water and fry for 1 min.
Add the veg
Tip the green pepper and tomato wedges into the pan and fry for 3 mins.
Stir in 1 tbsp tomato puree then add the INDIAN LAMB STOCK pot with 200ml boiling water and mix well. Let it simmer over a medium-low heat for 5-7 mins. Meanwhile, do step 3.
Fry the lamb
Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat then fry the lamb pieces in a single layer. Let them cook for 5 mins, turning occasionally to brown them.
For a thicker curry sauce, use cornflour following the tip. Otherwise, stir the lamb into the curry.
Heat the rice as per pack instructions.
Serve the rice and curry with a spoonful of yoghurt on the side, to balance the flavours.

One of my faves, so yummy!
Eloise - Jan 19, 2019
Really good curry (spicier than we were expecting, but we used the natural yoghurt to help with this!). Will definitely get this again
nicola - Jan 18, 2019
Milder than expected and a little bland

Very salty. Not up to the usual standard.
Nigel - Jan 10, 2019
Not bad at all
Melissa - Jan 08, 2019
Cooked for over an hour on low to tenderise, super.
Connor - Jan 08, 2019
Not our favourite so far
Denise - Jan 06, 2019
Loved this would cook again
Joanne - Jan 06, 2019
Was very salty (despite me not adding any) and I had to add garam masalla and ground coriander to put some flavour in to it. It turned out ok in the end but would have had to throw it away if I hadn’t the ingredients to tweak it.
Kathy - Jan 05, 2019
Not as tasty as I had expected - maybe I was trying to recreate the taste from an Indian restaurant ?
Lisa - Jan 04, 2019
This one has been our least favourite so far.
Belinda - Jan 01, 2019
Enjoyable enough. I made it in the slow cooker so it was really tender. Thought it would be a little more spicy.
Derrick - Dec 30, 2018
Sue - Dec 29, 2018
Nice and good taste
Phillip - Dec 27, 2018

Leighann - Dec 24, 2018

Only OK. Quantity is fine for two. Easy to make. Taste is rather bland
Phillip - Dec 20, 2018
Omg it was awesome, loved it
Paul - Dec 15, 2018
Not quite as good as my wife’s Madhur Jaffrey recipe, but still very tasty and so easy to make. Used the slow cooker to ensure tender lamb
Nicola - Dec 15, 2018
Rachael - Dec 12, 2018
It wasnt the best. Still nicer than a jar but nowhere near authentic curry or even takeaway
Natalie - Dec 10, 2018
Not a lot of taste was a little bland
Julie - Dec 10, 2018
Was ok, not my favourite
Michael - Dec 05, 2018
It needed more flavour.... so I added some Garam Masala, chilli powder, fresh garlic, ground cumin and ground coriander. Added an extra onion too. Also slow cooked it on the hob for about 2 hours. Browned the lamb first and then followed recipe.
Nydia - Dec 05, 2018
Sian - Dec 03, 2018
This one is really nice.
Margaret - Dec 03, 2018
Enjoyed this very much, wasn’t looking forward to it after reading some reviews, so decided to cook in slow cooker instead of the quick method, it was really tasty, would have it again
Emma - Dec 02, 2018
Sarah - Nov 26, 2018
Results were not as good as using a jar of ready made sauce or buying a ready meal. Needed less salt, more corriander, cumin, cloves and cardomom flavours, leave out the corn flour, double the onions, and use real fresh garlic. Put meat in earlier to absorb flavours
Leigh - Nov 25, 2018
My least favourite simply cook dish so far. Just not quite right
Colin - Nov 25, 2018
Laura - Nov 24, 2018
Russell - Nov 19, 2018
Absolutely terrible, nothing like a Rogan Josh. Didn’t even taste like a Curry, watery and no flavour. Unusual for Simply Cook!
Julie - Nov 18, 2018
Lovely will definitely have this again
April - Nov 18, 2018
Tasty enough but nothing like a rogan josh. It’s also quite mild even though it stayed medium spice.
Sharon - Nov 16, 2018
A bit too strong a flavour for me.
Denise - Nov 15, 2018
Lovely really enjoyed it
Alexandra - Nov 14, 2018
Not very spicy or flavoursome-disappointing.
Susan - Nov 14, 2018
Not the curry I was expecting but very tasty. Did it with new potatoes and runner beans. Yummy.
Helen - Nov 13, 2018
Used chicken instead of lamb, but was still delicious!
Beauleiu - Nov 13, 2018
Would of been lovely but my lamb was tough just a bad batch I think. Stressed out meat the prob these days.
James - Nov 11, 2018
Such a different fresh twist on this Indian classic.
