Combine lamb curry with lamb chops and you get this delicious lamb chops curry recipe. Succulent, tender pieces of lamb coated in authentic spicy masala gravy. Serve with chapatti or naan bread for a real treat!

This lamb chops curry is a twist on the traditional lamb karahi recipe. Lamb chops are cooked in a fragrant spicy masala to make them soft and tender. This spicy lamb curry is infused with traditional Indian spices and has a thick yet rich gravy sauce.

The succulent and juicy lamb chops with the flavourful sauce are the perfect accompaniment alongside boiled basmati rice. You can even serve with homemade garlic naan. You will not regret making this lamb curry!

If you’re a fan of Indian food and of lamb, then it’s safe to safe that two well-loved recipes of yours are lamb curry and lamb chops. As I love to eat lamb and Indian cuisine is just the best, I thought to myself ‘why not combine these two delicious recipes?’ So, this lamb chops curry recipe was born!

I alternate between using lamb chops and mutton chops meat. This recipe works for both types of meat. The difference between lamb and mutton meat is the age. Lamb meat is from sheep that are less than one year old whereas mutton meat is typically three years or older.

Lamb is more tender than mutton so requires less cooking time. So, if you do decide to use lamb instead, be sure to alter the cooking times accordingly.

This lamb chops curry recipe is a spicy curry that is infused with authentic Indian spices and tender lamb chops coated in an onion and tomato masala gravy. It’s a semi-dry curry that tastes so good with chapatti or naan bread. You could even have it with a side of basmati rice!

I created this recipe specifically to combine the wonderful flavours of Indian curries with the juiciness of lamb chops. However, you could easily use other cuts of lamb if you’re not a fan of lamb chops. Check out my lamb curry recipe for a similar lamb curry version. If you’re looking for more of a starter dish, then my masala lamb chops recipe is just right for you.
