    Geema's Note:

    These lamb chops provide a powerpunch of flavor that is toned down by the coolness of the tomato-cucumber raita. It's spicy and refreshing all at the same time! Feel free to cut down on the curry power and cayenne to suit your own preference or for a milder version. You can have these chops on the table in just over 30 minutes.

      The spices in the spice rub are very nicely balanced and give a great flavor that pairs nicely with the lamb without too much curry flavor. The raita is very cooling and has not too much of any one ingredient, which gives it a lot of interest! You have a very good recipe here, good luck in the contest!

      I would be pleased to serve these chops at any dinner party but for guests I would substitute loin chops. Follow the instructions and use only medium heat to cook them the spice on the outside can burn very easily I did not find them too hot , loved the blend of flavors from the raita it complimented the spicy flavor of the chops. I served them with lightly buttered whole wheat pasta, lightly steamed new carrots & cauliflower florets. The raita was excellent with the pasta. Thanks for yet another great lamb chop recipe
