Grilled Curried Lamb Chops with Mint Yogurt

This recipe pretty much cooks itself which is why it's one of my favourites mid-week go-tos.

I love these lamb chops. It took me some time to get the recipe right so that the chops came out soft and juicy and these definitely do! Straight after these pictures were taken the whole thing was polished off. 

Equally, this recipe makes a seriously impressive dinner party dish and it's so simple to make that you can't go wrong.

You can pop all the ingredients into one big bowl which means minimum washing (which is always a win, I love to cook, I hate to clean up after myself). 

I often come home, pop the chops in the oven (it only takes 10 minutes to prep) and then just have half an hour to myself, unwinding, while my flat fills up with the smell of all the delicious spices. 

The chops are packed with flavour so you can easily keep it healthy with a side of steamed vegetables.
