Serves 6 people
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 1 hour
1 Tablespoon Rapeseed Oil 1kg Lamb Chops
2 Large Onions, Peeled & Roughly Diced 3cm Piece of Ginger, Grated
6 Cloves of Garlic 1 Teaspoon Chilli Powder
1 Teaspoon Turmeric 1 Heaped Teaspoon Cumin Seeds, Crushed

  1. Blitz the onions in a blender.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onions, cook on a high heat for about 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce the heat and leave to cook until the onions start to brown. If they catch on the bottom of the pan, add a little water and continue to cook for about 20 minutes.
  4. In a blender blitz the ginger, garlic and green chillies and add to the pan once the onions have browned. Stir and cook for a further 5-6 minutes until the garlic is cooked.
  5. Place the chops into the pan and sear both sides before reducing the heat.
  6. Blend the tomatoes with a stick blender until smooth and add to the pan.
  7. Crush the coriander and cumin seeds in a pestle and mortar and stir into the pan along with the turmeric, red chilli powder, Kasoori methi and salt.
  8. Turn up the heat to bring everything up to a simmer, and then reduce the heat.
  9. Place the lid on the pan and leave to simmer gently for 30 minutes.
  10. Beat the Greek yoghurt and add a tablespoon at a time, mixing in between each spoonful to ensure it is fully absorbed. Leave to cook for a further 20–30 minutes until the meat is tender.
  11. Add a little hot water if you want more of a gravy, and then stir in the garam masala and top with fresh coriander to serve.
