Indian Spiced BBQ Charred Lamb Chops

Beautifully charred, juicy, and tender with the perfect masala spice kick, these chops are ALWAYS a winner!!  This is one of my favorite go-to BBQ recipes when I have friends around. Everyone devours them and ends up asking for the recipe, so the last few times I made them, I carefully measured each ingredient to perfection, and now I can share it with you lovely people.  They are insanely quick to make if you have the ingredients to hand as everything is just blitzed in the food processor… I know you will thank me when you make them!

I used loin lamb chops this time as they are so meaty with an even layer of fat which, when charred, has INSANE flavor.  I know it seems strange to add mint jelly and mango chutney to the marinade, but it gives just the right amount of sticky sweetness to compliment all the spicy masalas. I also swear by the Shan Masalas @shanfoods, which you can find from your local Indian food store. 

We cooked these beauties on the Big Green Egg BBQ, starting on indirect heat and then finishing off on direct heat for the perfect char!
