Rub the chops with all the rubbing spices and refrigerate until needed.
Fry onion in olive oil in a large pot or pan with cumin seeds and bay leaves.
Crank up the heat and add the marinated lamb chops and fry until chops are brown, and all the liquid has dried. Add the canned chopped tomatoes, curry leaves, green chillies and stock cubes. Mix well and cook on medium heat for about 45 minutes until chops are well cooked. Add a little water at a time if necessary. Season to taste. Serve with pap cooked according to packet instructions.
