This Indian spiced lamb is tasty and tender when marinated and cooked on a grill. The small cuts in the meat help to infuse the spices and make it extra flavoursome. Serve with rice and a garden salad with mint.

Preparation Time: 6 1/2 hours (including time to marinate)
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
4 lamb fillets or steaks
3 cm ginger, finely grated
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp turmeric
2 tbsp cumin
1 tsp ground chilli
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 lemon, juiced and finely zested
1/2 cup natural yoghurt (lactose free if required)
1 tbsp oil
Cooked rice, to serve
Garden salad sprinkled with mint, to serve

Method
  • Heat a frypan on a medium heat and add the cumin, coriander seeds, turmeric and cinnamon. Stir for 1-2 minutes or until aromatic. Add the chilli and stir for 1 minute.
  • Take spices off the heat and place in a mortar and pestle with the ginger and garlic and grind until smooth. Add the lemon zest, juice and yoghurt and stir to combine.

  • Place the lamb in a flat dish, coat with the marinade, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours (up to 24 hours). I marinated mine overnight with great results.

  • Preheat a fry pan or grill on medium heat. Lightly oil the pan and cook the lamb for 4-5 minutes each side for medium rare (63 degrees on a meat thermometer). The cooking time will depend on the how thick the lamb is.
