Mutton Rogan Josh Curry(Lamb Curry)

After tasting this dish several times i had to take up the challenge to cook it up all by myself. And to my surprise i did it. This Dish came out to be absolutely wonderful Lamb curry. I prepared it with Minimal use of spices thereby keeping intact Lamb's own flavour. One Challenge was to prepare it without the use of Pressure cooker, since i like meat on my plate to be buttery and not chewy. I cooked it slowly on the skillet and i reached to a point between chewy and buttery. Anyways i loved the gravy as well. I wish to prepare this dish Back home in India in my village and serve it to all my family members.
