8-10 succulent lamb chops
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of creamy full-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons of zesty lemon juice
8-10 mint leaves, finely sliced
1 tablespoon of ginger and garlic paste
2 tablespoons of vibrant red chilli powder
1 teaspoon of aromatic coriander-cumin (Dhania Jeer) powder
1 teaspoon of flavourful Garam Masala
1 teaspoon of fragrant Kasuri Methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
½ teaspoon of golden turmeric
½ teaspoon of optional egg yellow food colouring
½ teaspoon of salt (adjust to your taste)
Fresh coriander for a final flourish
1. Begin by mixing the creamy yogurt, zesty lemon juice, freshly sliced mint leaves, and the captivating combination of ginger and garlic paste. Don’t forget to sprinkle in all those delightful spices mentioned in the ingredient list. Oh, and a pinch of salt to elevate those flavours!
2. Give this blend a vigorous stir until it transforms into a luscious, thick paste. Now, the fun part – taste testing! Adjust the seasoning to match your personal flavour preferences. It’s your kitchen kingdom, after all.
3. Time to introduce those lamb chops to the flavour party! Coat those juicy chops with your mouthwatering marinade, ensuring each one is thoroughly coated. Let them marinate and mingle for a couple of hours or a breezy 30 minutes if you’re short on time.
4. Set the air fryer on Grill function at 190 degrees. Gently place your marinated chops in the air fryer, ready to perform their delicious dance.
5. Let the air fryer work its magic for about 10 minutes on each side. The aroma will tease your senses and build excitement.
6. Now comes the basting encore! Flip those chops and give them a loving drizzle of leftover marinade. Another 10 minutes of air fryer spotlight awaits.
7. If you’re craving that perfect crispy edge, extend the party for an extra 5 minutes at a confident 200 degrees.
8. As your aromatic lamb chops bask in their flavourful glory, prepare for the grand finale. Serve these delights alongside delicate slices of red onion, zesty lemon wedges, and a flourish of fresh coriander.
9. Serve with fresh roti or naan, spiced potato chips that offer a tantalising crunch, and a sassy side of your favourite spicy sauce.
