How to make tandoori lamb chops

We have tried to keep this simple for you – there is also a recipe card below to print out – so use this as works best for you. Let us know if you enjoy it. And don’t forget to pin it too!

You do need to plan ahead for this, as the chops need to be marinaded for 12 hours, so do bear this in mind with your meal planning.

  1. In order to make the Tandoori lamb chops, mix up the yoghurt and other ingredients for the marinade as above. Cover it well and leave for 12 hours chilling,
  2. Pop the oil in an ovenproof dish, and heat it up. Once it starts to smoke, add the potatoes, and shake them up a bit,
  3. Now you need to add ALL the spices, as well as the garlic and chilli. Don’t forget to season too,
  4. Pop in the oven and roast it for 25 minutes – temperature needs to be 180C,
  5. Remove from the oven, and fold in the cashews, tomatoes, and coriander,
  6. Once the lamb has been left to chill for 12 hours, take it out, and put under the grill for 8-10 minutes, turning once and then basting with the lemon and butter,
  7. In order to make the dip, you need to blend all of the ingredients together; spring onions, chillies, coriander, mint, lime juice, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper,
  8. Once the dip is made, combine it with the yoghurt, and then serve it alongside the bombay potatoes, and the chops.

We do hope you enjoy these Tandoori lamb chops – it’s a great way to introduce the kids to some different flavours; and lamb chops are always a firm family favourite too.
