Lamb chops with Indian spices!!!!

Hi guys!!!

A couple of weeks ago, I watched an episode of Aarti Sequeira on Food Network, which featured a recipe of Lamb chops cooked with Indian spices. As I was watching it I knew what I was gonna have on Sunday :-) But I kind of felt that the recipe was not really spicy. So, I just added a few more spices and created my own version of the Indian style Lamb chops!!!

You can cook them with just half an hour marination but the longer you marinate the tastier it turns out. I left them marinating in the fridge for almost 2 days. I cannot begin to explain how delicious the dish turned out. Without any more delay I am going to the recipe.

Serves 1 person

Lamb chops - 2 cut pieces (I used loin chops)
Curd - 1 cup
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 tsp
Tomato ketchup - 2 tbsp
Cayenne pepper sauce - 1 tsp (Use any hot sauce)
Salt - as per paste

For Indian masala powder:
Cinnamon - 1 inch stick
Cloves - 6
Cardamom - 2 pods
Fennel seeds - 2 tsp
Corriander seeds - 2 tsp
Whole pepper corns - 2 tsp


1. Dry roast all the ingredients required for the masala powder and blend them into a smooth powder.
2. Now mix all the ingredients including the ground masala powder and rub the lamb chops thoroughly in this marinade.
3. Cover and refrigerate as along as you want. (Upto 3 days is good)
4. On the day of cooking, take the meat marinade and let it come to room temperature for uniform cooking. Preheat the oven to 200C.
5. Remove the excess marinade from the lamb pieces and lay it on a baking dish and pop it in the preheated oven and let it cook for 25-30 minutes for medium rare.

Serve with mint chutney/ketchup.
