  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (for serving)

Instructions

  1. [Pacing around the kitchen, cracking knuckles] Preheat the microwave to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together garam masala, cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper (if using).
  3. [Rubbing spice mixture onto lamb chops with a flourish] Season the lamb chops with the spice mixture, making sure to coat them evenly.

  5. [Adding broccoli to the skillet] In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of ghee. Add the broccoli florets and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until tender but still crisp. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. [Chopping nuts with a sharp knife] In a small bowl, mix together chopped almonds and walnuts.
  7. [Microwaving lamb chops] Place the lamb chops in the microwave and cook for 30-45 seconds, or until cooked to desired doneness.
  8. [Assembling the dish] To serve, place a lamb chop on each plate, top with a spoonful of broccoli, and sprinkle with the nut mixture. Dollop with Greek yogurt and garnish with chopped cilantro.
  9. [Folding arms, nodding in satisfaction] This dish is a true flavor bomb, with the bold spices and crunchy nuts complementing the tender lamb and broccoli perfectly. It's a culinary masterpiece that will leave your taste buds doing the Bollywood dance!
