A study was carried out to find out the quality of Rogenjosh - a traditional Kashmiri meat product, available at various outlets of Srinagar city, in terms of physico-chemical (pH, moisture, protein, ether extract and ash), microbiological (Total Viable Count, Coliform count & presence of E. coli) and sensory quality. On the basis of infrastructure and services provided, outlets were divided into High standard (HS), Medium standard (MS) and Low standard (LS) restaurants. The results for moisture (%) and ether extract (%) differed significantly (p0.05) differences. The TVC and Coliform count showed increasing trend from HS to LS type. However, E. coli was present in 16.6 % of sample, (all from LS type). The overall acceptability score of the product from HS, MS and LS was found to be 6.46 ± 0.10, 5.90 ± 0.12 and 6.17 ± 0.12 respectively, on 8 point descriptive scale (8= extremely desirable, 1= extremely undesirable).
