Vindee's Rogan Josh, Okra, & MeMe

One of my favorite dishes is Rogan Josh, and whenever there is something that I like so much, I always try different variations of it. When I saw Vindee (Passionate About Baking) had a recipe, I decided to make it... as any time I try a dish of hers, it never dissapoints! As I expected, It was awesome! I made this along with an okra dish I found in Neelam Batra's 1,000 Indian Recipes. It has all the spices, like coriander, cumin, cayenne, ginger/garlic & some chaat masala... but the interesting thing was the way it was made. Instead of pan cooking, It was coated with spices and oil, and broiled then baked in the oven till golden. The chaat was added at the end before serving.
