Kashmiri Fried Lamb Lollipops (Rib Chops)

I'm super excited this month to be the featured chef over at US Wellness Meats. I will be featuring a new recipe each week for the entire month of April. And let me tell you, if you've never tried out their meats......you are in for a REAL treat! It is seriously the most delicious stuff you will ever eat and their mission is to "Do what's good for our animals, good for our planet and good for you."

We're kicking this thing off with Kashmiri Lamb Lollipops! One of my absolute favorite ways to devour lamb. And if you are gagging over the idea of a lamb flavored sweet round sucker right about now, rest assured it's not that kind of lollipop, haha! "Lollipop" just refers to the way the rib chop is cut and prepared (seen below) Other than that it's a flavorful traditional Indian recipe packed with warm spices and twice cooked to perfection. First by poaching the lamb and then battering and frying it. Genius!
