HOT LUNCH RECIPE WAGON: Spiced Lamb Chops

Karahi is a style of cooking that comes from Kashmir in northern India, where the curries are cooked in a cast iron pan with a rounded base and two handles, also called a karahi. A wok or large skillet with a cover makes an ideal substitute for preparing this particular comforting recipe.

4 lamb loin chops, ( about 3 ounces each) 

2 green chilies (finely chopped)

4 garlic cloves

1 onion, finely chopped

4 green cardamom pods

1 teaspoon ground cumin

¼ teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon coriander

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoon tomato paste

¼ teaspoon salt

2 -inch piece gingerroot, peeled and grated

¼ teaspoon Garam Masala

Heat

the oil in a wok or skillet with a lid over medium heat.  Add the lamb chops, garlic, chilies, onion, and cardamom pods and fry, stirring 12 minutes or until the lamb changes color.  Bring 1 ¼ cups water to a boil while the lamb is cooking.

Stir

the cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon and salt into the lamb and continue frying 1 minute longer. Add the tomato paste then pour in the boiling water.

Cover

the pan, reduce the heat to low, and simmer 12 minutes, or until droplets of oil appear on the surface.  Sprinkle with the garam masala and ginger and serve hot with naans.  Pack warm in a heated lunch tote for a hot lunch on the go.
