Spicy Lamb Chops with Tomato-Cucumber Raita

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Geema

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.
