Enjoy our take on this classic street-food dish. The earthy flavours of our Rustic Rogan Josh pairs so beautifully with mushrooms and creates the perfect lunch.
Anjum Signature

Tailored to Taste
Our Rustic Rogan Josh kit pairs perfectly with earthy flavours and really complements meats like lamb and beef, but also works really well with mushrooms! Here, we have used chestnut mushrooms, as they have a lovely nutty flavour that is brought out when lightly charred. These mushrooms in our delicious Rogan Josh sauce work so well together, and we have used them here to create a spiced twist on the American ‘Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich’. I love taking inspiration from street-food dishes from around the world. In this one, the flavours of the Indian spices, combined with charred peppers and melty cheese results in a dish that I keep coming back to for a delicious, easy lunch. It’s also great garden party food to share with friends.
Ingredients
  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Rustin Rogan Josh 
  • ½ red pepper, sliced
  • ½ green pepper, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 300g chestnut mushrooms, wiped clean and thickly sliced
  • 100g mature cheddar, grated
  • 2 slices of sourdough, or 2 hoagie sandwich buns or other soft long rolls
Method
  1. Preheat your oven, or the grill setting of your oven.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a pan and add your sliced onions and peppers. We want these to take on a bit of a char, so try not to move the veg around too much. 
  3. Once these are nice and charred, remove them from the heat and leave to one side while we cook the mushrooms using the same pan. Add them in two batches so they have a chance to colour on each side; you might want to add a little more oil here.
  4. Once the mushrooms have browned, add both sauce pouches from the pack to that pan along with all the mushrooms and simmer for a few minutes.
  5. To assemble, lightly toast your bread. Add your cooked mushrooms atop the toast/hoagie, piling this high with the peppers and onion. Finally grate on some cheddar. 
  6. If you have time, place the final open-faced sandwich under the grill for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. Sprinkle with a bit of flaky sea salt to finish.

MADE WITH OUR DELICIOUS
Rustic Rogan Josh

Rogan Josh has its roots in Kashmir, where it was traditionally made simply with oil, freshly pounded spices, yoghurt, fresh lamb and a natural red food colouring. However, as the dish left its home, it morphed into a heartier lamb curry and went from a regional favourite to a national one.

Whilst our Rustic Rogan Josh nods to its original roots, it has added zing and depth. Our Rogan Josh is perfect for less expensive, more flavourful cuts of lamb, but also works with mince and other quicker-cooking cuts. Why is it rustic? Refined sauces are often passed through a sieve for a finer, less textured sauce. Our Rogan Josh is full of wonderful little textures that burst with flavour as you bite into little chucks of tomato, ginger, coriander and other delicious ingredients.
