Rogan Josh

Originating in Kashmir in northern India, where various trade routes and political rivalries have played out, this mild, aromatic lamb curry uses seasonings reflective of its crossroad status. It takes on a characteristic red hue from the use of bright-colored spices. Serve inside a pita pocket or with toasted pita chips.
