  • 2 pounds lamb chops
  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves finely grated
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander optional
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  • Season lamb chops with salt and pepper.
  • Combine yogurt, lemon juice, and garlic in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Set aside 1/2 cup of the yogurt mixture in a small bowl for serving. Stir cumin, coriander, turmeric, and allspice into remaining yogurt mixture.
  • Coat evenly all sides of chops with spiced yogurt mixture (avoiding the bone). Let chops sit at room temperature 30 minutes, or cover and chill up to 12 hours.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Wipe off excess marinade from lamb chops, discarding any remaining yogurt marinade. Grill to desired doneness, about 3-4 minutes per side for medium. Sprinkle the lamb chops with fresh parsley and serve with reserved yogurt mixture.

The chops may also be broiled in the oven about 5 minutes per side for medium or pan-seared in oil.
