Broiled Lamb Chops with Papaya Chutney


  • 1 large cucumber seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 large papaya about 1 1/4 lb., peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 teaspoon each ground cinnamon and ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 lamb rib chops cut about 3/4 inch think (about 1 1/2 lb. total), trimmed of fat


  • Prepare Seasoned Yogurt; set aside.

    Place lamb chops on a lightly oiled rack in a broiler pan. Broil about 4 inches below heat, turning once, until well browned on both sides but still pink in center; cut to test (8 to 10 minutes).

    Meanwhile, in a wide frying pan, combine sugar, vinegar, onion, raisins, cinnamon, and ginger. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft (about 5 minutes). Add papaya and stir gently until heated through (about 3 minutes).

    Seasoned Yogurt:
    In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt, 1 tablespoon mustard seeds, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, and 1/8 teaspoon chili powder.

    Transfer chops to a platter; spoon papaya mixture over chops. Serve Seasoned Yogurt and cucumber strips alongside.
