lamb & yogurt

I have just found fage total greek yogurt. Whoa! It's as if I never had yogurt before. I got some lamb chops - what can I do to combine the two and it be maybe a step up from gyros. I'm not crazy for mint other than in tea. Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. Lamb biryani with mint raita? (My personal favorite)
    Lamb chops marinated in herbed yogurt? (garlic, rosemary, thyme, lemon?)
    Rosemary chops with tzatziki?

    Just a few ideas.

    1. puree pitted black olives and rosemary into a bit of the yogurt
      add harissa paste and preserved lemon to the yogurt
      mix cukes, dill, a little chili, and lemon juice into the yogurt as a side salad
      sautee an onion and one package of fresh spinach. drain and cool. mix with yogurt and black pepper and chill.

      1. Lamb korma. I just made this over last weekend with Byblos greek yogurt. So good.

        1. Throughout the middle east yogurt is served as a side to many dishes. It brings a variety of contrasting flavors and textures to the plate. A little sheppard's salad (chopped tomatoes, (red) onions, and cucumber with fresh lemon and olive oil and fresh pita bread would make a not uncommon dish.

          1. Tandoori lamb chops - mix yogurt with lemon juice, garlic, chopped fresh chilli, grated ginger, cumin, coriander and salt. Marinade for as long as you can, then put them under a very hot grill (or on a barbeque - even better) and let the yogurt coating start to catch and turn dark brown/black at the edges. Serve with more yogurt, singapore chilli sauce, pitta bread and salad.
