Spiced Lamb Riblets

Riblets also known as keel bone, Nenjelumbu in tamil are often cooked in many places. But
usually this is used for making curry or semi gravies. For a different, I am going to make
oven fry today. Riblets are relatively fatty. When slow-cooked in oven they become
incredibly soft, tender. The fatty flavor will add extra tempting after cooked. The rib bone
become handy after cooked properly. You can hold this bone and eat like tandoori. Let’s 'make now.

Lamb Riblets - 1 lb
Red chilli powder - 1-1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - ½ tsp
Lemon juice - 3 tsp or juice from ½ lemon

masala, ½ tsp black pepper powder, required salt, 3 tsp lemon juice or juice from ½ lemon,
1 tsp ginger garlic paste and mix it all together to bind everything.

oil. Roasted sesame oil will give some strong flavor.
Now mix it once again.

Place riblets in a baking tray and apply the masala which we made on all riblets. Apply both
sides and all parts.

After 6 hours marination, preheat oven for at 350 degree and put the riblets baking tray
