Crunchy Tandoori Thin-Cut Pork Chops Recipe Is Ready in 15 Minutes

The crispy tandoori-style chicken legs recipe made my stomach growl, but I had thin-cut pork chops thawed for dinner. What to do? Grab my Indian spices and create a crispy pork chop recipe with the same flavors. OMG, they were good!

This easy pork chop recipe was prepped and on the table in 15 minutes. I skipped the yogurt, which is traditional in tandoori, and just seasoned the chops heavily in the spices, dusted with flour and pan fried. A recipe winner that I already want to make again.

Cuisine: American / Indian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the curry powder, garam masala, cumin, garlic powder, turmeric and paprika in a small bowl. Put the flour onto a plate. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Sprinkle half of the seasoning mix on both sides of the pork chops. Put the remaining seasoning blend into the flour and stir to combine.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the pork chops and cook until golden brown on one side, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Flip the pork chops over and continue to cook until golden and cooked through, about 2 to 3 more minutes.

What would the cook time and temp be to cook these in an air fryer to avoid frying in oil? Thanks! Sound delicious but I don’t fry in oil!

Thin pork chops (1/2-inch thick) take 5 minutes on one side, and 4 to 6 minutes on the opposite side, to cook in the air fryer at a preheated temperature of 400 degree F. I would mist them with olive oil spray. Let us know how they turn out for you!
