Tandoori Lamb Loin Chops
« on: February 03, 2019, 10:51 PM »






I marinated these for 48 hours due to the fact that nobody was home to eat them on the first night.  They were delicious and I should have done double the amount. 

I served these with Sverige's Bombay Aloo (using JB's oven pre-cooked spuds),  CTM (made from MM's Aussie IR pastes), Chicken Korma (made from the tandoor cooked chicken breast pieces marinated in the leftover Raan marinade),  Mango Chicken (Yes again. I have to cook it every time or it isn't curry night), Pilau rice (brown basmati, which I've been really enjoying instead of white), fresh garden salad and I cheated with frozen naan. 

The KD base gravy Mango Chicken was a hit with both daughters. This dish is now 100% cracked.  The frozen naan are surprisingly really good. I did a couple in the toaster and a couple more just thrown into the oven for a few minutes.  No complaints.

Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Looks great Livo
Quite a selection of recipe/styles in there.

The duff one i.e. KD base, is a given for your non curry liking customer. ;D
You certainly keep the family well fed :P

cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.

Thanks guys. These chops were delicious. The long marination (unintended) may not have been required but it certainly didn't hurt. The originally planned 24 hours would have been sufficient and I think I'd be just as happy with 12 hours.

Vinotinto, from memory I just used CT's 2 stage marination process and ingredients as described for his chicken tikka.  I may have varied it a little but I can't see that it would have been too different. I'll check my notes to see if I made any at the time.

I have some chicken dumbsticks and thighs (I deboned some legs) in 2 different marinades, a shop bought Piri Piri which I just can't get right and the rest in home made BBQ sauce.  I always marinade in a fridge I have in the garage and I find it takes a good 2 days to get a proper depth on the meat, no matter how many times I slice or pierce them through.

Good to see you 'back in the saddle' Livo.

Not up and running about yet BAJ. Stick to get about and pain meds to get some sleep.

Vinotinto, I made no notes about the tandoori lamb loin chops so I would say with 100 % certainty that I simply used Chewy's marinade process and ingredients. I can see no reason I would have used anything other, having found this to be reliably my favourite.

Here is a link to his 2012 version http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=8714.0.  The one I have written down is slightly different but I can't find a link to this version.  I doubt it would make much difference, however;

The differences are only in the second marinade.
1) 6 TBSP yogurt instead of 4.
2) No G&G paste in the second marinade.
3) 1 tsp Mixed powder (or substitute) instead of coriander,cumin and GM.  I sometimes use Kitchen King or other Curry Masala but really not that critical.
4) Kebab Paste not included but Extra Tandoori Paste (2 TBSP) and Kashmiri Paste ( 1 tsp).  I have also at times used Tandoori Masala powder and Basaar (Kashmiri) to equally good effect as Patak's pastes in catering size are not readily available.  I have used pastes but not Patak's brand.  Equally as good no matter the variation really.

I don't think the minor tweaking of one or 2 ingredients listed will have any significant detrimental affect on the finished dish.  I certainly haven't found this to be the case.

Better a kitchen renovation than a hip renovation, methinks !

Both hurt in the same place.
