12 lamb cutlets

2 tbsp garam masala

  1. For the aloo, add the potatoes to a pan of boiling salted water and cook for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Meanwhile season the lamb cutlets with salt and pepper and place them in a bowl. Add the garam masala, lemon juice and oil, turn the cutlets to coat and set aside to marinate.


  1. Drain the potatoes, half them and set aside. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium/high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5-10 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Lower the heat, sprinkle in the spices and stir for 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes and 150ml of the water. Bring to a simmer, add salt and pepper and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes until slightly thickened.


  1. Meanwhile, heat a griddle over a medium/ high heat. When hot cook the lamb cutlets on the griddle in 2 or 3 batches for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove and leave to rest.
