Indian style lamb racks

Serves 4
Prep time: 3 hours
Cooking time: 20 mins

"This recipe is an original east Indian dish. It's very simple, tasty and melts in your mouth. Originally from my grandmother, I have added a few ingredients. I tried it in NZ years ago with NZ lamb racks and it never tasted better. Try it and you will be amazed."
