I like my chops spicy, so I use 2 tbsp of the tandoori powder, mix it in with 2 tbsp yoghurt, squeeze the juice of half a lemon and the grated ginger. Mix together then pour over the lamb and coat both sides thoroughly . Cover and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours. I usually make it up the day before. Then grill or bake and serve with a salad.

Salad: 42.5 calories
Mix the thinly sliced carrots, apples and red onion with the leaves.

Dressing: 44.5 calories
Mix the lemon juice with the olive oil, add salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste.
