Rogan josh curry is even better done as a rogan josh balti!
Balti cooking is all about making tasty curries easily and fast. This lamb rogan josh balti is a great place to start your balti journey.
The rogan josh curry is of course very popular at curry houses around the UK but it’s even better done as a rogan josh balti!
Why I cooked this rogan josh balti on the barbecue…
You could of course cook your rogan josh balti over high heat on your stove. That’s how it’s done at restaurants after all.
I like to cook them right over the hot coals. I think it gives the curry an even better flavour and baltis need to be cooked over high heat which can be easily done over a fire.
You will need to make the base sauce as it is an important part of getting the texture and flavour of an authentic rogan josh balti.
The base sauce is easy to make and keeps in the fridge for at least three days. It can also be frozen in 300ml – 500ml portions for use in this or other curries.
Pre-cooking the meat…
At Indian restaurants and balit houses, the meat is cooked ahead of time.
This is done not only for speed but flavour. You could try my pre-cooked meat recipe. It’s really nice and the cooking stock adds so much flavour to your balti curries.
If cooking outdoors on the barbecue, you might also like to try my tandoori lamb tikka recipe. This is really convenient when cooking outside as you can cook the meat and the rogan josh balti at the same time.
