Rogan Josh (Indian lamb stew)

A roast leg of lamb with all the trimmings for our Easter lunch did not go to waste 2 weeks ago.  I decided to reuse the leftovers to make Bert’s favorite Indian dish, Rogan Josh.  It is a spicy, and succulent slow-cooked lamb curry.  Indulgent, and flavorful, with a spiciness that transforms into a rich and thickened sauce, this lamb curry would be a great dish to entertain with; I know I’ve had rave reviews from guests and have passed on this recipe many times over.  The recipe is taken from Madhur Jaffrey’s Indian Cooking cookbook.  Madhur Jaffrey is one of the world’s leading authorities on Indian cuisine.  Born in Delhi, she gained distinction as an actress in England and hosted the popular BBC television series on which the book is based.
