Friday Supper: Rogan Josh served with Cabernet Sauvignon

This is satisfying, hearty meal well suited to a chilly evening. Super easy but requires a little thought the day before. Serve with Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon.

Why is this the right wine choice? Cabernet Sauvignon goes very well with red meat, particularly lamb and is more than happy with Indian style dry curries.
Rogan Josh
  • Mix your ginger and garlic together. Put them in a bowl that’s big enough to fit all the cubed lamb in. Add the turmeric, yoghurt and black pepper to the bowl and mix together. Tip the lamb into the bowl and stir it around until it’s well coated with the yoghurt and spices. Cover and leave overnight in the fridge to marinate.
  • Preheat your oven to 170ºC/325ºF/gas 3. Chop your onions and peppers roughly and whiz them in a food processor with the fresh red chillies.
  • Put the pan you are going to cook the curry in on the medium heat and add the cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and coriander. Toast until they go a shade darker in colour, then pour into a pestle and mortar and grind up with the dried red chillies.
  • Keep the pan on the heat and add a splash of vegetable oil. Add the whizzed onion, peppers and chilli paste from the food processor with the ground up spices and paprika.
  • Cook over a gentle heat for about 10 minutes. By now, lots of delicious curry smells will be coming out of the pot. Add the tomatoes, the marinated lamb and half a pint of water, and stir well. When the curry comes to the boil add the salt, cover tightly with a lid and place in your preheated oven. You can basically forget about it now – wait 2 hours and carefully take the pot out of the oven.
  • Serve with rice, your favourite Indian bread such as parathas, naans or chapattis.
