Method of cooking lamb chops

You can make lamb or mutton chops in oven, tawa, bbq or grill. I will try to explain the process for oven, tawa and bbq here.

The key part of a succulent mutton or lamb chop is marination. Longer you can leave the chops to marinate, better these chops will taste. I recommend at least 8 hours of marination for great taste. In my recipe I have used double marination.

  • Wash the chops and keep them in a colander so that all the water drains out.
  • Now in a mixing bowl, add coriander powder, red chilli powder, salt, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice, vinegar and mix thoroughly. 
  • Now put the lamb chops in the bowl and cover them with this paste with the help of your hand. Let this marinade for an hour.
  • Slit the onion lengthwise and deep fry them in hot oil. Once onion is brown, take them out on a kitchen towel and let this cool.
  • Add dried mint leaves, yogurt, garam masala to the lamb chops. Also crush the fried onions with the help of your hand and add it as well.
  • Mix this properly so that the lamb chops are evenly coated with the marinade. Cover the bowl with cling film and keep it in fridge for at least 8 hours or overnight.

Different ways of cooking lamb chops

To cook lamb chops in oven: Pre-heat the oven for 10 minutes at 180 degree. Place the lamb chops in a baking tray and brush them with little oil. Keep the tray in oven for 30 minutes.  After first 15 minutes, turn them and again brush them with little oil so that they can cook from both sides.

To cook lamb or mutton chops on tawa: Keep the tawa on medium heat and put little oil and then place the chops. Cook them till they are soft and succulent while regularly turning in between.

To make lamb or mutton chops on bbq: Ensure barbecue is very hot. Now place the lamb chops on the hot portion of bbq and keep turning every 2-3 minutes adding oil by brush. If you like lamb chops well done, then keep turning the chops till you see the chops are well done.
