Tandoori Lamb Chops with Yoghurt Dressing

These are just amazing. When I look at them, and notice they are not tandoori red nor tell tale tandoori scorched, I cannot kid myself that I am not in my favourite curry house. I do not have a tandoor (oh, how I wish…) and I do not use a red dye in my food. But the taste of them, is comparable with the best tandoori lamb I have ever had. And damn easy too.I can take no credit for the deliciousness of the chops as I nicked the recipe from here, but I have modified the dressing somewhat, owing to availability of ingredients and evading the evil coriander. I bet my dressing is nicer.

Marinade and cook the lamb chops as per instructions. Take blender, and add:

  • 100 ml plain yogurt
  • good sprig of mint leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • juice of one lemon
  • pinch of ground cumin
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • glug of olive oil
  • half teaspoon of sugar

Whizz all the ingredients in a blender and serve, with chops and salad.
