Rogan josh is an aromatic lamb dish of Persian origin, the item Rogan josh was brought to Kashmir by the Mughals and Mughlai cuisine was in turn influenced by Persian cuisine, the interpretation of the word “Rogan josh” evolved from the word “rogan” meaning “red color” and “josh” means heat or passion, the characteristic red color in the dish comes from the liberal amount of uses of  Kashmiri chilies and Ratan jot (dried root ), uses of saffron in the dish is also part of a tradition (in La Fiesta, caterer in Kolkata, we use kashmiri chilies and heat the rattan jot separately in ghee to obtain the red color and put it in the dish)
