This recipe for Roasted Lamb Chops with Indian Curry Sauce is hands-down one of my favorites. It’s a special dish, perfect for romantic dinners or entertaining.  In summer, the lamb can be grilled, but in winter, simply roast the lamb chops, whole in the oven, giving them a quick broil to finish, crisping up the edges. Slice and serve over this fragrant Indian Curry sauce. This sauce makes me incredibly happy – its flavor is so divine you will want to lick your plate.
And even if you don’t eat lamb, or have vegetarians among you, the Indian Curry Sauce is so incredible!  Simply serve it with roasted veggies, or tofu,  with a side of basmati riceThe dried fenugreek leaves can be left out of the dish, but if so inclined, seek them out – for it adds a delicious earthy, nuttiness to the dish which will bring it to the next level.
    
Simply trim the lamb racks and season with salt, pepper and garam masala spice mix ( or use curry powder). They roast quickly in the oven, about 20 minutes, just enough time to make the sauce.
Slice and serve. So easy…anyone can do this! It feels like a fancy gourmet dinner, but it’s very do-able.  Give it a whirl. Make sure to buy your lamb racks already “frenched”.

  1. Made the recipe with Costco Lamb fillets. Those were thick and I pierced them with a fork. But very juicy and even the picky eaters in my home came back for seconds. Going to try again with mint sauce next time to cut thru some on the heat. But other wise very recommended. Thank you very much.

  2. I was on the hunt for an Indian-inspired lamb recipe tonight, and this was just the ticket! I used bone-in lamb loin chops and reverse seared them, but kept everything else the same. WILL make again.

  3. I’m picky about lamb (because of the potential gamey taste) and my parents are picky sometimes about new flavors, but this was fabulous! Definitely going to make it again.

  4. This was divine – lamb lovers enjoyed it with grilled lamb backstraps & I enjoyed with vegetables – such a versatile as well as delicious curry. I managed to find some fresh fenugreek as well – all plates licked clean.
