Taste was like regular mutton curry-nothing special but not bad either!

This looks like a good Mutton curry but I don't find this one to be anything like the Roghan Josh I eat right here in Kashmir & that my inlaws taught me to make. Yes, we DO use onion in most dishes!!!!

You didn't mention anywhere the use of "ratan jote" which is a bark of tree found in Kashmir. It is not even near the authentic Rogan Josh Recipe. This is the recipe of normal mutton curry.
