Despite its exotic flavors, fear not, for its preparation is surprisingly manageable, making it an ideal choice for both novice and seasoned cooks alike. So, gather your ingredients, and let’s delve into the tantalizing world of Lamb Chops Curry.

Expert Tip: For a creamier texture, you can add a splash of coconut milk or cream towards the end of cooking.


Lamb Chops: These tender cuts of lamb provide the hearty foundation for our curry, offering rich flavors and a satisfying texture that perfectly complements the aromatic spices.

Olive Oil: Acting as the base for our curry, olive oil infuses a subtle richness into the dish while helping to bind the flavors together.

Ginger Paste and Garlic Paste: With their bold flavors, ginger and garlic paste elevate the dish, lending a zesty kick and aromatic essence that permeates every bite.

Onions and Tomatoes: These humble yet essential ingredients provide a sweet and tangy balance to the robust flavors of the curry, creating a harmonious blend of tastes and textures.

Kashmiri Chilli, Chilli Powder, Coriander Powder, and Turmeric Powder: This combination of spices brings the heat and vibrant colors to our curry, adding layers of flavor and visual appeal.

Salt: A pinch of salt enhances the natural flavors of the ingredients, ensuring a well-balanced and savory dish.

Garam Masala: The final touch to our curry, garam masala imparts a warm, aromatic flavor that ties everything together, leaving a lingering, irresistible taste on the palate.

Expert Tip: To enhance the aroma of the curry, toast whole spices like peppercorns, bay leaves, and cardamoms before adding them to the dish.

Hey, for 1kg of lamb chops, you can adjust the ingredients proportionally based on your preferences. You may not need to double every ingredient exactly, but it’s a good starting point. Feel free to adjust seasonings to taste.

This is one of the most delicious meat curries I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve managed a lot). The gravy is soooo fragrant. I cooked this in an instant pot so I used half the amount of water suggested. The chops I had were quite thick – 3cm approx (or 1.5 inches) so I cooked it for 15 minutes. Turned out absolutely perfectly.

Thank you so much for the recipe.

I have now amended the description. Yes, the coriander is fresh. I always tend to use fresh coriander but if you don’t have fresh, you can also use frozen coriander. 🙂
