Lamb Shank Roganjosh: Ingredients
- 300 ml Vegetable Oil
- 3 Bay Leaves
- 4 Black Cardamom Pods
- 6 Cloves
- 2 Medium Whole Cinnamon Sticks
- 1 kg Onions (finely sliced)
- 6 Lamb Shanks
- 2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
- to taste Salt
- 2 tsp Kashmiri Chilli
- 1 tsp Red Chilli Powder
- 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
- 2 tbsp Coriander Powder
- 700 gms Tomatoes (chopped)
- 1 tsp Garam Masala
- 1/2 bunch Bunch Fresh Coriander Root
- 2 tbsp Fresh Coriander Chopped
- 1 tbsp Ginger Julienne
Heat vegetable oil in a big, deep cooking pan over high heat, then add bay leaf, cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon for flavour. Cook until the sliced onions are brown.
Add the ginger-garlic paste and simmer for a few minutes more. Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes after adding the salt and powdered spices (excluding the garam masala).
Cook on low heat with the diced tomatoes and coriander roots. In a separate pan, sear the lamb shanks on each side on high heat to give them a good texture and, more importantly, to seal in the flavour and fluid inside.
Place the seared lamb shanks in the sauce and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes, or until tender.
Add the garam masala powder and cover the pan with a lid, but check it at regular intervals.
When the lamb shanks are done, take them from the sauce and set aside. Pour the sauce back over the lamb shanks after passing it through a fine sieve.
Garnish with fresh coriander and ginger and serve hot.
