cooking tips you can trust
If you, rather than the butcher, cube the lamb, cut it from the shank half. And be sure to remove fell, gristle, and surface fat from the meat.
Don't substitute skim-milk yogurt for the whole-milk yogurt.
If you do not have the whole spices for step 5, use the ground equivalents and roast them for only 5 minutes.
If you don't have ghee or clarified butter, substitute 20 milliliters (1 1/2 tablespoons) each of unsalted butter and vegetable oil.
Don't let the preparation boil in steps 9 and 10 lest the yogurt curdle and the lamb toughen.
If they are unavailable, substitute 30 milliliters or 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley leaves (preferably the flat leaf variety).
Kashmirians love to eat their Roghan Josh with white rice and breads. If you can't buy Indian-style breads, you can serve pita bread.
Prepare cooked spinach or other greens.

Beer or wine?
Beer is a better beverage choice than wine.
Experiment with different spices, such as asafetida, and flavoring agents, such as tamarind.
Instead of braising the lamb in step 9, cook it uncovered. Add a small quantity of water each time the liquid nearly evaporates.
Substitute kid or beef for the lamb.
