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.

Janet - Jan 19, 2019

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

Donna - Jan 15, 2019

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


Steve - Dec 26, 2018

Nice amount of spice and not to hot. Really liked it

Leighann - Dec 24, 2018


Andrew - Dec 21, 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

Nice dish

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

Love this

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.
