Inspired by a late night visit to Brick Lane we were desperate to try grilling some delicious spicy lamb chops on our Weber Genesis S-330.

Using the flavours of Bangladesh we created a tasty rub packed full of flavour and heat to marinate succulent lamb chops, the rub married perfectly with the sweetness of the lamb.

These were then grilled (you'll be amazed how many you can fit on a Genesis) and simply served, heaped on a plate with plenty of cool cucumber raita for dipping.

Bengali Lamb Chops


  • Lamb chops - 8


  • Garlic cloves, minced - 4
  • Ginger, minced - 2 tsp
  • Ground Cumin - 2 tsp
  • Cardamom pods, crushed - 6
  • Black mustard seeds, crushed - 2 tsp
  • Turmeric - 1 tsp
  • Ground coriander - 2 tsp
  • Garam Masala - 2 tsp
  • Hot Green Chillies, finely chopped - quantity to taste
  • Tomato Puree - 2 tbsp
  • Salt - Pinch
  • Pepper - Pinch
  • Oil - Splash


To produce this dish we've used the following:

  • Weber Genesis S-330 Gas BBQ
  • Large Drip Trays
  • Weber Gloves (large)


  • In a pan on a low-medium heat; toast the cumin, cardamom pods and mustard seeds until fragrant.
  • Remove from the heat and in a bowl add to your other marinade ingredients - mix well to form a paste, loosen with oil if required.
  • Score lamb chops and rub the marinade into the meat; coat thoroughly and place in a ziplock bag, refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove the fridge and bring up to room tempreture, scrape off any excess marinade (garlic and ginger could burn and become bitter)


  • Use either the cooking grates (cast iron works best) or if you're lucky enough to have a Weber BBQ with Gourmet BBQ System then you can use the GBS Griddle for a perfectly even sear across the entire surface area of the meat.
  • Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side of the chop to cook medium-rare, leave to rest for 10 minutes once removed from the grill. You're looking for lovely golden colour on the outside of the lamb with a slightly pink centre.
  • This dish makes for a delicious starter or side but for a main dish serve with rice, naan bread and plenty of cucumber Raita.
