  • 1 lb lamb chops about 6 pieces
  • ½ cup cilantro fresh
  • ½ jalapeno
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled
  • 10 mint leaves
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp olive oil


  • Blend together Greek yogurt, cilantro, mint, garlic, jalapeno, turmeric, cumin, coriander, garam masala and salt.
  • Make tiny slits on the lamb chops with the end of a paring knife.
  • Rub the masala marinade thoroughly over the lamb chops and let it chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and leave out at room temperature for 30 mins before starting to cook it.
  • Once the lamb chops have been sitting out for 30 mins. Apply a little of the olive oil on either side of the chops.
  • Fire up the grill and let it get to a high temperature, around 400F, knob at medium to high on the gas grill.
  • Grease the grill grates with some oil and place the lamb chops on them.
  • Grill each side for 2-4 mins depending on how well done you want them to be, till the internal temperature reaches 145F for rare or 160F for well-done.


While making the marinade, the yogurt will help blend the other ingredients together, so you don't have to add any water.
