  3. I am from India and have very little experience with mutton but really want to make lamb chops.
    Can you tell me on an average how much time it takes to cook lamb chops and exactly how to know they’re perfectly done.
    Also, what are the signs that the mutton is overcooked and undercooked?

    • Hello Tanvi. Thank you for your message. I have always cooked Mutton in low flame in a wok so that the meat is always tender and juicy. The most important part of cooking mutton is marination. Marinate it with curd and salt for about 1-2 hours. The more time you devote in marinating the mutton the softer your mutton would be. For Lamb chops you can easily cook it in a frying pan on high flame. It will not take much time to get it cooked. 10-12 minutes. To identify the mutton is overcooked or under-cooked you will have to taste it while it is getting cooked. If you see the fiber is not getting stuck in your teeth then its perfectly cooked. If you see the meat has got separated from the bones it’s over cooked.

    • Not at all. The best way to marinade your mutton is with curd. The more time you devote in marinating the mutton with curd, you will have a soft juicy mutton. Also keep in mind that you need to buy kid goat as they r softer.

      Cheers!
