Chicken Rogan Josh Thursday, April 17 2014
Typically prepared with lamb, rogan josh is a fiery red Kashmiri Indian stew that consists of braised meat cooked in a gravy comprised of onions, yogurt, garlic and Kashmiri chilies or paprika, among other aromatic spices.
With just a touch of heat, this dish is mild enough for most palates and goes excellently with basmati rice and naan.
Chicken Rogan Josh
2 lbs chicken, cut into 1.5 inch chunks
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 cups undrained tomatoes (or 16 oz diced tomatoes)
steamed basmati rice
naan, for serving
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft. Add chicken and cook until slightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Add rogan josh seasoning, yogurt, tomatoes and, if desired, salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until curry comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered, for 1 hour, or until sauce has thickened.
Serve over basmati rice and with naan bread.
