kabargah Kashmiri Lamb chops

When I saw this recipe , it tempted me to try it out. Glad I went ahead and made it, came out so flavorful. Both  me and my husband just loved the dish.

Its basically lamb chops, cooked in milk and spices. And later coated with a yogurt marinade  and shallow fried in  clarified butter ( ghee)
 This  kashmiri recipe called Kabargah, made by Pundit style cooking. This method  of cooking uses more of yogurt,turmeric, and less or no onions, that's what makes this dish more unique! Also spices like cloves, cardamon, , ginger and 
fennel are most commonly used.
Traditionally, they cook these lamb chops in ghee ( clarified butter) though now a days if you are more health conscious you can cook them in olive oil too.
 They are easy to prepare, follow some simple steps and adding  milk, makes them so soft and juicy!!
