Method to cook Ginger Lamb Chops

Trim the ribs abs keep aside
In a separate bowl add the yogurt , chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, ginger paste , garlic paste , pepper powder , salt and the papaya paste 

The raw papaya in this recipe acts as a natural meat tenderiser . Papaya contains the enzyme papain which helps break down the collagen in the meat ,thereby releasing the juicy flavours of the encapsulated fat contained in the meat 

Next , proceed by mixing all the above ingredients well to prepare a marinade 

Dip the chops in this marinade and set them aside for at least one hour

In order to cook the chops , take a pan and drizzle in the oil
As the oil starts to heat add the marinated chops along with the gravy
Add the cardamom and cook the gravy on low heat 

In order to thicken the gravy , pour in the cornflour slurry prepared by mixing 1/2 a teaspoon of cornflour in half a cup of water and mixing them well 

To further enhance the taste of the lamb chops you could grill them lightly by leaving them in a pre-heated oven at 240 degree for 10-15 minutes 

Once done serve the mouth watering lamb chops drizzled with fresh lemon juice and garnished over with finely chopped coriander and onion rings !
