How to make it:
  1. Season the meat with salt, pepper, rosemary, and crushed garlic.
  2. Rub it with olive oil, then quickly flame grill it over a VERY hot grill, taking the chops off when the meat is still rare but charred on the outside.
  3. Plate the chops onto a plate you have dressed with the yogurt sauce.
  4. The sauce is made with the yogurt, mint, basil, cardamom, salt and pepper to taste and honey. Just mix together.
  5. To serve, place a dollop of sauce in the center of each plate, and arrange the chops around it in a pinwheel pattern, with the meaty ends over the sauce and the ribs sticking out over the rim of the plate.
