Punjabi Lamb Chops

Maybe its the caveman in me speaking but I love meat on the bone. The flavour it imparts is unreal. And we’ve all heard the fat equals flavour adage. Team those two mantras up and add some curry spice and I’ve come up with this! You can have this as a starter or a main.. You decide! Ive come up with a multi purpose curry powder that you’ll really love and it will make the base for 100’s of different curries!
