Fried Lamb Chops

Fried lamb chops, a succulent and flavorful dish, bring together the richness of lamb with a crispy, seasoned coating.

Originating from various culinary traditions, this recipe offers a delightful combination of spices and textures that tantalize the taste buds.

While it may seem daunting to cook lamb chops perfectly, fear not, for this recipe is designed with simplicity in mind, making it accessible even for beginners in the kitchen.

Expert Tip: For an extra flavorful twist, add a squeeze of lemon juice to the marinade for a touch of acidity that enhances the overall taste of the dish.


Lamb Chops: Tender and juicy, lamb chops provide a rich and meaty flavor that pairs perfectly with the spices.

Ginger Paste and Garlic Paste: These aromatic ingredients infuse the lamb chops with depth of flavor, enhancing their overall taste.

Onion: Finely diced onion adds a hint of sweetness and texture to the marinade, complementing the savory notes of the lamb.

Salt: A crucial component for seasoning, salt helps to bring out the natural flavors of the lamb chops, ensuring a well-balanced taste.

Water: Used for cooking the lamb chops initially, water helps to tenderize the meat and create a flavorful broth.

Spices: These spices form the basis of the batter, lending a warm and aromatic flavor profile to the dish.

Eggs: Eggs act as a binding agent in the batter, ensuring that it adheres to the lamb chops and forms a crispy coating when fried.

Corn Flour: Corn flour adds crispiness to the batter, resulting in golden-brown and crunchy lamb chops.

Expert Tip: Adjust the amount of chili powder according to your preference for spice level, keeping in mind that Kashmiri chili powder tends to be milder in heat.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the fried lamb chops hot and crispy alongside a side of chunky chips for a satisfying meal.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped coriander or parsley for a pop of color and freshness.
  • Accompany with a tangy mint yogurt sauce or a zesty salsa for dipping, adding an extra layer of flavor to each bite.

Expert Tip: Make sure to pat dry the lamb chops before marinating them to ensure that the marinade adheres well and the chops fry up crispy.
