Planning to make Rogan Josh, But has anyone managed to source Ratanjot? I can’t find it anywhere in the Asian stores and when I ask they all just look at me with a blank face!

I'd use kashmiri chilli powder. Great for that red colour but doesn't carry much heat.

@Karen Maria shouldn’t do too much but it’s not the vibrant red it’s a bit darker. You can get ratanjot on Amazon and surprised the Indian shops didn’t have it. I use Kashmiri chilli

@lesishy.li I’ve seen some for medicinal purposes. Wonder if that’s the edible version too

@Hari Ghotra I always use Kashmiri or degghi Mirch. I have also heard of beetroot powder, but not sure if that will affect the taste too much.

A good alternative is just Kashmiri chilli powder for the colour if you can’t get it.

Also known as alcanot root I looked it up. you can get it on Amazon but it is expensive. I hadn't heard of it either.
