Kashmiri Indian Lamb Chop Curry
Friday is what we call a fun family night and this Kashmiri Lamb Chops Curry is a perfect way to welcome the weekend!
What is Kashmiri Lamb Chops Curry?
It’s nothing but Indian Lamb Chops made using a special ‘Kashmiri Spice Blend’ in a yogurt sauce.
Kashmir is a state in the north of India and is extremely popular for its rich, aromatic dishes cooked using ‘Saffron, Fennel, Almonds, and Cardamom’.
Just the aroma of all 4 ingredients together can send your taste buds ticking for more exciting and delicious recipes.
Another extremely important ingredient in Kashmiri cooking is ‘Red Chillies’, which are famous all over the world for its bright red color.
They are not as spicy as they look but give an extremely bright…almost burning red kind of color which at times we mistake for too much heat.
If you have looked carefully into any of the store-bought Tandoori Spice Blends, you might see ‘Kashmiri Chillies’ as an ingredient (bright color and less hot).
So, once you have my ‘Kashmiri Spice Blend’ ready, this recipe comes together in 30 minutes.
You can store this blend upto 6-7 months in an air-tight jar and use it whenever you want to make this Kashmiri Lamb Chops Curry or even Kashmiri Dum Aloo.
