  • 6 lamb chops
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 green cardamom pods
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 fat cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 2″ Piece of fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 medium green chillies, chopped finely
  • Zest of a half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree

In a pan, dry fry the cumin, cardamom pods and the black mustard seeds until fragrant. Take care not to burn. Add them to a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients apart from the lamb chops and mix well. Smear over the chops and refridgerate, marinating for 48 hours (Yes…2 Days!). This will spice the lamb perfect & it should fall from the bone, even though cooked meduim rare.

Bring to room temperature before cooking. Scrape off as much marinade as possible & BBQ for 2 minutes each side for medium rare, and leave to rest somewhere warm for 10 – 15 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Served this as a starter, snack or with with rice & a cucumber raita with Parathas.
