Here is the recipe for spicy mutton/ lamb chops in Indian masala. I prefer to cook the mutton chops in masala and then pan fry with little oil just enough to roast the sides of the chops. According to this recipe you can cook the chops and freeze it for later use. One of the best recipes for parties. Few basic ingredients are used in this and its a very easy as well as quick recipe.
Preparation time : 10 minutes
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Serves : 4
Mutton chops/ Lamb chops – 8 pieces
Kashmiri red chilly powder – 2 tablespoons
Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala powder – 1 teaspoon
Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
Lime – 1, juice extracted
Salt – to taste
Oil – to shallow fry the cooked chops
Wash and clean the mutton chops.
In a bowl add all ingredients except oil. Mix well to make a thick masala. Marinate the chops in this masala for 10 minute.
Take a pressure cooker, add the marinated chops along with 1/4th cup of water. Cook for 4-5 whistles ( depends on the quality of mutton too) or till the mutton is completely cooked . Let the pressure settle down. Open the lid and switch on the flame on high and cook till all liquid is absorbed. The mutton chops should be completely dry.
In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and fry the cooked mutton chops on medium – high heat till nice dark brown color on both the sides.
You can even grill the marinated chops in the oven. It would take around 30 – 45 minutes to get the well roasted mutton chops.
