'Valentine’s Day is celebrated with and for your loved ones! So I chose these two dishes, keeping my wife in mind. These dishes happen to be my favourite too.’ Bobby Retnakumar Geetha is executive chef of Asha's Restaurants. This Valentine's week Friday asked some of Dubai’s top chefs to create dishes that will feature on their Valentine’s menu

20ml lemon juice concentrate
20g garlic paste
20g ginger paste

20kashmiri chilli powder
50g greek-style or hung yogurt

In a clean mixing bowl, marinate lamb chops with salt, lemon juice, ginger and garlic pastes for 2 hours.
Mix together the remaining ingredients for the marinade in a separate bowl and marinate lamb chops in the mixture for another 3-4 hours.
Cook the lamb chops in a hot convection oven at 250°C. (You can barbecue the lamb chops too.)
