Method: Begin by placing the lamb/mutton chops in a bowl and seasoning them with salt. Add a generous amount of raw papaya paste and mix thoroughly. Cover the bowl and allow the meat to marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours. 

Mix in the ginger-garlic paste, garam masala powder, crushed red pepper, gramme flour, cumin powder, chaat masala, red chilli powder, lemon juice, yoghurt, and cover and marinate for an hour in the refrigerator. Oil the grilling pan and set it to medium heat. Grill the chops for 6-8 minutes per side over a medium flame. 

Put the potatoes in a bowl and mash them thoroughly with the masher. Mix in crushed red pepper, salt, coriander seeds, chaat masala, rice flour, black pepper powder, green pepper, ginger garlic paste, spring onions, and fresh coriander. 

Oil your hands, scoop out some of the mixture (about 65 grams), and shape it into tikki of uniform size. Make a slurry of Cornflour and water, whisked together in a bowl. Next, use the flour slurry to coat the aloo tikki. Prepare 11–12 aloo tikki by adding cooking oil to a frying pan and browning them on both sides over a medium temperature.   

Prepare a side dish by combining cabbage, carrots, onion, purple cabbage, salt, and black pepper powder in a bowl.  Place saffron rice, lamb/mutton chops, aloo tikki, and salad on a tray and serve.
