(Nepali Grilled Lamb Slices Marinated in Chili Sauce)

Top Review by graffeetee

i have used this several times as a marinade for lamb chops. because the meat is thicker, i marinate the chops at least overnight. this is a nicely spiced combination of flavors, and these are seaonings i always have on hand.
