How to Cook Spicy Lamb Chops
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the yoghurt, chili powder, a pinch of white pepper, red wine vinegar, coriander powder, white flour, salt, lemon or lime juice, ginger-garlic paste and sugar and mix well. Add the lamb chops and make sure they are well coated with the spice mix. Leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the marinated chops and cook for 5 minutes on a medium heat. Turn the chops over and cover the pan with a lid, then cook on very low heat for 20-30 minutes. Once the lamb cooks and becomes tender, remove the pan from the stove. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
MAMTHA SUNIL KUMAR'S HOT TIP:
The trick is in cooking the lamb tender - the slower the better, so take care to adjust your heat accordingly. If you can access charcoal at the time of cooking (like a barbeque) you can place some hot charcoal on top of the lamb just before you close the lid. It will give it the truly authentic taste and aroma of the original recipe.

The addition of a little blue cheese to this Country Lamb Pie lifts it from "normal" to "super-pie" status because the taste is so good.
