Railway Mutton Curry



Railway Lamb / Mutton Curry (mild Rogan Josh) is a direct throw back to the days of the British Raj, when travelling by train was considered aristocratic. This very popular and slightly spicy dish was served in Railway Refreshment Rooms and on long distance trains, with Bread or Dinner Rolls.
