â€¢ 1/4 cup olive oil
â€¢ 1 tablespoon lime juice
â€¢ 1-2 tablespoons sweet chilli
â€¢ 1 teaspoon grated ginger
â€¢ 2 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
â€¢ 1 teaspoon garam masala (you can get this from the supermarket)
â€¢ 1 teaspoon turmeric
â€¢ 3-4 lamb backstraps or 8-10 fillets, or 12 cutletsStir oil, juice, sweet chilli, ginger, garlic, garam masala and tumeric in a large dish. Add lamb and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 4 hours or overnight if that’s easier.
Depending on how you want to cook them. Preheat a lightly oiled BBQ or frying pan on high. Drain excess lamb marinade, then cook meat, in batches if necessary, for 2 minutes on each side if you are using cutlets or 4-6 minutes on each side if you are using backstraps. Don’t forget to let it rest to create the sauce it tastes great. Our kids LOVE this dish.
If you have the time and you can get mangos it’s an added bonus to have the chutney.
