Onx's Easy Masala Chops

Onx’s Masala Chops

This is without doubt one of my favourite dishes and probably one of the easiest dishes on this site to make. It's delicious. Basically you just chuck nearly all the ingredients into a pan and wait. It's Brilliant!!! Try it. You won't be dissappointed. Good luck.


1.5 kg spring lamb chops
2 medium onions: chopped
400oz tin chopped tomatoes
1 cup of natural yogurt
3 tblsp ginger/garlic paste
1 tblsp cayenne powder
1 tsp toasted cumin seeds
2 tsp garam masala
1 lemon
Fresh coriander
Salt to taste


In a large heavy base saucepan put the lamb chops, onion, ginger/garlic paste, chopped tomatoes, yoghurt, cayenne powder, cumin seeds and salt.
Give all the ingredients a good mix.

Put on a medium heat and bring to the boil
Reduce the heat, cover and leave for about 1hr

Put the garam masala and lemon juice in a bowl and mix thoroughly and put to one side

After the chops have been cooking for an hour, remove the lid add the masala and lemon mixture and give the chops good stir, cover and leave for another 30 minutes
After the 30 minutes is up, have a taste
Adjust seasoning to taste
Add the fresh coriander

The meat on the chops should fall off the bone and melt in the mouth. serve with rice or chapattis.

I cooked this dish and it was very easy and tasted great.

Fantastic if you have friends coming as you can put it on and leave it to cook away.

Nice one Onkar
