Spicy Roasted Lamb Chops

There are days I really crave some red meat and Lamb chops is one of the simplest to make and cooks in a jiffy!!  This is one of the recipes which can be pre marinated and frozen ahead of time.  Very convenient for parties where you could take it out and cook them quick.  They turn out finger lickingly delicious!!  Your guests will love it and will not even guess that it took so less effort :)

  • Lamb Chops - 12 to 15 number
  • Olive Oil - 1 tea spoon
For the Spice rub:
  • Turmeric - 1 tea spoon
  • Coriander powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Cumin powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Chilli powder - 1 tea spoon (adjust per taste)
  • Salt - 1 tea spoon (adjust per taste)
  • Ginger paste - 1/2 tea spoon
  • Garlic paste - 1/2 tea spoon
  • Methi/Fenugreek powder - 1/2 tea spoon
  • Lemon juice - 1 table spoon

If the Lamb chops are in a block, cut it into thinner slices (one bone per piece as shown in the picture above).  In a bowl, mix the ingredients for spice rub really well.  Smear and rub gently this spice rub onto the Lamb chops.  Cover and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
To a pan on high heat, add the Olive oil.  Now place the marinated Lamb Chops flat on the pan.  Sear them on both sides for 1 minute each.  Now lower the heat to medium and cook the lamb chops until completely cooked.  This will take about 4-5 minutes on each side.  Serve with some Onions and Lemons!!
