4 Garlic cloves, crushed
2.5cm fresh ginger, grated

1tbsp ground cumin
2tsp garam masala
1tsp mild chilli powder
1 lemon, rind and juice (keep rind for salad)

     For salad

    1 red onion, finely diced
    2 large tomatoes, finely diced
    ½ cucumber, finely diced
    Handful chopped mint
    Lemon rind

      For sauce

      Natural greek yoghurt
      1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
      1 lime, zest and juice of ½ lime
      Handful chopped mint


        1. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients for the marinade, stirring well. Add the chops and coat thoroughly. Cover and leave in fridge for at least 2-4 hours.
        2. Remove the chops from the fridge 30 minutes prior to cooking.
        3. Make the salad by mixing all the ingredients together and put in serving bowl.
        4. To make the dip, just stir all the ingredients together and place in small dish.
        5. The Welsh Lamb chops can be cooked in the oven, grilled, pan fried – ideally on a griddle pan or on the BBQ. To cook, scrape a little of the marinade off the chops, lightly oil your pan or grill tray and cook for approximately 5-6 minutes each side depending on their thickness and how you like your Welsh Lamb cooked.
        6. Rest for 5 minutes and serve with the salad, dip and warm bread.
