A great homemade Indian meal which is far superior to a take-away.

  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 200g natural or Greek yoghurt, full or low fat
  • 4cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

Basmati Rice

  • 1-2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 750g lamb leg steaks, fat and bone removed then cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion, thickly sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 200g natural or Greek yoghurt, full or low fat
  • 4cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 400g tinned tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • Coriander leaves to serve
  • 250g brown basmati rice
  • salt and pepper to season
  • a pinch of saffron threads (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1
    Put 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over a high to medium heat. Season the meat with salt and pepper and brown the meat well - this is easiest if done in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan. Place cooked meat onto a separate plate.
  • STEP 2
    Add the second tbsp of oil to the pan and cook the onion for 6-8 mins until they start to brown. Add the bay leaves, cardamom pods, coriander, cinnamon, cumin and paprika and garam masala. Cook for a couple of minutes until they release their aromas.
  • STEP 3
    Blitz the yoghurt, ginger and garlic in a blender until quite smooth. Add this mix to the pan with the tinned tomatoes and tomato puree.
  • STEP 4
    Add the reserved lamb and let it simmer for about 10-12 mins, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thicken and meat is cooked through.
  • STEP 5
    Whilst the Rogan Josh is simmering, cook the Basmati rice according to the packet instructions with desired seasoning.
  • STEP 6
    Drain rice (if necessary), then serve with Rogan Josh and a sprinkling of coriander leaves.
