Madhuri.Dixit's picture
  Onion 1 Medium, peeled and coarsely chopped
  Ginger piece 1 Inch, peeled and coarsely chopped
  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), peeled and coarsely chopped
  Tomato sauce 8 Ounce
  Ground coriander 2 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground turmeric 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground mace 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon (To Taste)
  Pork chops 8 (Rib Or Loin)

Put the chopped onions, ginger, and garlic in blender and blend to a smooth paste (about 1 minute at high speed).
Combine paste with remaining ingredients except the pork chops and mix well.
With a fork, prod holes in the chops and put them in the marinade.
Rub them well with the marinade, cover, and leave refrigerated for at least 6 hours.
Light the charcoal.
When the fire is really hot, put the grill on its lowest notch.
Lift the pork chops out and place them on the grill.
Reserve any marinade.
Sear for about 8 minutes on each side.
Now put the grill in its highest notch and cook for about 20 minutes on each side.
Brush with the marinade before you turn chops over each time.
To serve: If you want a very simple meal, these chops could be served with plain boiled potatoes and a salad of spinach or Boston lettuce or romaine and onion rings.
Or if you like, you could serve it with Sweet Rice with Carrots and Raisins and Cucumber Raita.
