Nyama Choma / Grilled or BBQ Chops

I have had a lot of requests for this recipe.  I finally managed to find a good recipe from my cousin; Gulzar in Canada.  The special ingredient is kiwi, which contains meat tenderizing enzymes.

Nyama means meat and choma roast, it is usually made from beef short ribs.  I was not able to get any so I have used frenched lamb chops.  This would make it kondoo choma, just as goat meat would be mbuzi choma, or beef - ng'ombe choma



1 lemon; juiced
1 kiwi; peeled and sliced
2 inch piece of ginger; roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup fresh coriander
2-3 green chillies
1 teaspoon freshly ground cumin
1 level tablespoon tandoori masala 
1 lb lamb chops; washed
salt to taste


Method
Place all the ingredients (except for the lamb) into a food processor and liquidize. 
Marinate the meat in this for minimum of 1 hour maximum of 3 hours, otherwise it will become too soft.
Broil in a hot grill for 10 minutes and turnover and cook for a further 8-10 minutes
I served it with roast vegetables and salad.

In retrospect the tandoori masala was too overpowering, next time I would half or omit it altogether.

correct...had real nyama choma in serengeti recently and there was no tandoori masala...just pure nyama choma

My suggestion..omit tandoori masala completely
