MASALA LAMB CHOPS

Ingredients

– 8 lamb chops, french trimmed
– 1 tablespoon Ginger Garlic Paste
– ½ tsp Ground Turmeric
– ½ tsp Ground Cumin
– 1 tablespoon Garam Masala
– ½ tablespoon Salt
– ½ tsp Pepper
– 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
– ½ cup Greek Yogurt
– Pomegranate Seeds, for garnish
– Pistachios, for garnish

Directions:

1. In a glass dish combine the Greek yogurt with all the spices, ginger garlic paste, and lemon juice. Fold the yogurt marinade until well combined.

2. Add in the lamb chops, and mix well in the marinade, coating each piece well.

3. Marinate in the fridge for 2 hours. Once marinated, let the chops sit on the counter for 10 minutes to take the chill off while you preheat the BBQ on High.

4. Cook the lamb chops on high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until reaching an internal temperature of 130F.

5. Arrange on your serving platter and top with crushed pistachios, pomegranate seeds, and cilantro. Serve alongside a mint chutney and enjoy!
