Ingredients for Spicy Lamb Chops:
- 10 pieces lamb chops
- 1/3 cup clarified butter (ghee)
- 8 green cardamoms
- 8 cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 2/3 tbsp ginger paste
- 2 2/3 tbsp garlic paste
- Salt to taste
- 2 cups yogurt
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
- ¾ cup brown onion paste
- 1 tsp black pepper powder
- 1/5 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp mace powder
- 1/5 tsp green cardamom powder
- 1 tsp saffron
- 2 drops vetivier (kewda) essence
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp green coriander, chopped
- 2 tsp ginger, julienned
Directions for making Spicy Lamb Chops:
In a pan, heat clarified butter, add the lamb, green cardamoms, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaves, ginger and garlic pastes and salt. Cover and cook on low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and stir-fry for a few minutes.
Add yogurt and continue to stir fry till the liquid evaporates.
Add the red chilli powder, dissolved in water (2 tbsp) and stir for a minute. Add brown onion paste dissolved in water (3 tbsp) and continue to fry. Add a tablespoon of water when the liquid evaporates, to ensure that the sauce and lamb do not burn.
Add half the pepper, cumin and water (6 cups), bring to a boil and cover. Lower the heat, seal the lid with dough and simmer on slow fire for at least 1 hour.
Unseal and remove the lamb from the curry. Strain the curry, return to the stove and reduce the curry to pouring consistency.
Add the mace, cardamom powder and saffron with vetiview mixed in milk. Cook for about 5 minutes.
Pour the sauce over the lamb shanks, garnish with julienned ginger and green coriander and serve hot, accompanied by Lachhla Parantha or Naan.
