Food Trip Friday 048: Rogan josh



I’m sure a lot of you know  by  now what happened  this week in Phnom Penh. We are still in mourning and the Penh is still unusually quiet. People are still reeling from the horrible incident, and grieving the loss of hundreds, mostly young people. The Cambodian Prime Minister declared yesterday, Thursday, the national mourning day.  

Coincidentally, it was my husband’s birthday and, out of respect for the victims and their families, he decided to forego our planned birthday dinner. Which is fine to me, by the way. So we had Indian food delivered to us instead. This is one of my husband’s favourite:
I often mispronounced this dish to something like Groban Josh! *lol* Rogan josh is  diced lamb meat cooked in heavenly rich onion and tomato sauce. Of course, rogan josh, or any other curry for that matter, is not eaten without it’s ever-present partner, the chapati:
   And this is how we ate it…

I'm becoming impartial to Indian food and I used to get that distinct smell of spices but now it looks like it's growing in me. Belated birthday to your man...

I love rogan josh, in fact most of the Indian curries are great even they are not presentable like Western Food they do rock!

Dhemz said...
