Grind all the ingredients for the masala paste together and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the yoghurt and masala paste and stir well. Add the chops and turn several times till they are coated with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Remove from fridge 30 minutes before cooking and allow to come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 180C. In a large frying pan, add enough oil to coat the base of the pan and fry the chops till they are browned on either side.
Place the chops on an oven tray and bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
