Chicken Rogan Josh

16 Nov

Points to remember…..bcos of the use of Red chilly and also Chilly powder this dish was a little pungent.I think a few cashews in the onion in the paste should help reduce the pungency.I have avoided this due to the cashew intolerance at my home.


  1. 10-15 pieces chicken(preferable Bone in pieces).
  2. 1 Large onion sliced.
  3. 1 tsp garlic paste
  4. 1 tsp  ginger paste
  5. 2 tsp yogurt for marination.
  6. 2 cloves
  7. 1 bay leaf
  8. 1 cinnamon stick
  9. 2 tbsp yogurt for gravy.
  10. Salt for taste
  11. 1/2 tsp Kashmiri lal mirch powder
  12. 4 Red Chilly.
  13. 4-5 cashew(preferable-Can be avoided for any restriction)
  14. 1/4 tsp garam masala.
  15. 1/4 tsp honey


  1. Marinate chicken with garlic-ginger paste,salt and yogurt.
  2. In 1/2 cup water slow boil the dried red chillies.
  3. In a pan with 1 tsp oil,saute the cinnamon-bayleaf-cloves.then Onions.Take this aside and make into paste with another 2tbsp of yogurt ( and cashew soaked in milk if you like)and the cooked chilly.
  4. In the pan add little bit oil,fry the chicken with marinate till it leaves oil.Remove and keep aside.
  5. In a pan add little more oil if necessary and fry the onion-curd-chilly paste.Add the Chilly powder and fry till it leaves oil.
