You must have Traditional Mutton Rogan Josh, a kashmiri recipe which mostly recognized by the bright red colour of thin gravy made by so many whole spices. This dish actually made me feel like a shorba, like a hot soup which can we have in winters but mainly this dish prepared with mutton which have to marinate with papaya paste and then cook. Here I made it with chicken but the recipe i follow is the same which used in Kashmiri region from centuries.
