To start any spectacular Indian feast, take inspiration from the most popular starter at the iconic Benares Restaurant in Mayfair, London – Tandoori Lamb Chops. This champion dish has been winning over patrons since the restaurant’s star-making opening back in 2007.
Tandoori Lamb Chops – Serves 2
- 6 x lamb cutlets
- Dutch Red chillies and Piquillo Pepper paste
- 20gm Ginger
- 20gm Garlic paste
- 15ml Oil
- 10ml Lemon juice
- 7gm Papaya paste
- 15gm Roasted Gram Flour
- 5gm Kashmiri Red Chilli powder
- 3gm Turmeric powder
- 3gm Salt
Combine all of the ingredients to make a paste and mix with the lamb cutlets. Marinate the lamb for at least two hours.
Cook lamb in a tandoor or oven at 200 c for 3-4 minutes (based on cutlets of 40gms). Rest the meat for 2 minutes and baste with butter and chaat masala.
