Kashmiri Lamb Chops.


Kashmir is the northern most part of India and it has its own cuisine. Kashmir is one of the most beautiful places on this earth and a very famous poet once said about Kashmir that if there is heaven on earth then it is here, it is here, it is here. Kashmir has lush green fields and grows world’s best saffron and kidney beans. Kashmir has rich culture traditions and even though most of the population is Muslim but there is significant number of Hindus too. So they have developed their cuisine which is a mix of Hindu and Muslim culture which reflect in their dishes too.

The Kashmiri lamb chops is one of the specialty of the region and most Kashmiri people are very fond of lamb and mutton.

These lamb chops are cooked in a very unique way as first they are boiled in milk and they are fried. Boiling in milk makes them very tender and juicy. Also it doesn’t absorb much oil when fried. Even though we use such a large number of spices in this dish, but it has very mild flavour and is delicious to eat. It is usually served with rice but can be served without anything too.

      Thanks Urmila for forwarding this dish to your friend. These days being vegetarian is in thing and is very healthy. We all are predominantly vegetarians in India, ie most of times we eat only vegetarian food and meat is just once or less per week

      Hi Jenubouka, I think if you go to your local buture you would get chops for sure. I dont know if you can substitute with any other meat but you can try with say boneless portions of lamb made in to a patty, but i really dont know. Only if you try we would know.

      Cool, Thanks Indian chef. Where I live it is hard to find lamb or I should say "good lamb." I do have resources to order lamb chops, which I think is worth it for this dish.
