Turn up the heat with this easy homemade rogan josh recipe that's cooked with authentic Indian spices and pieces of slow-cooked tender pieces of lamb to bring out the full flavour.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a heavy based saucepan or casserole dish. Fry the lamb for about 10 minutes, until golden brown, cooking in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan if you need. Set aside.
Add the remaining oil to the pan, followed by the onions. Cook for 3 – 5 minutes until soft, then stir in the garlic, ginger, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon and cook for 1 minute more. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika and tomato purée and return the lamb to the pan.
Cook for 3 minutes, stirring often to ensure the lamb is well coated. Stir in the yogurt, 1 tbsp at a time, pour over 125ml (4fl oz) water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 1 hour, topping up with water if needed or until the lamb is tender.
