Lamb rogan josh, Salomi Indian and Bangladesh Restaurant, NoHo, CA


Rogan josh (or roghan josh) is an aromatic lambdish of Persian origin, which is one of the signature recipes of Kashmiri cuisine. Rogan (روغن) means “oil” in Persian, while josh (جوش) means “heat, hot, boiling, or passionate”. Rogan josh thus means cooked in oil at intense heat. It consists of braised boneless lamb chunks cooked with a gravy based on browned onions or shallots, yoghurt, garlic, ginger and aromatic spices (cloves, bay leaves, cardamom, cinnamon).

This place is not as good as the India Oven of San Antonio, but it is good nonetheless. 5/5.
