Grilled spring lamb rogan josh with chick pea salad & minted yogurt


255g pack The Spice Tailor Rustic Rogan Josh
4 lamb leg steaks
400g can essential Waitrose Chick Peas, drained and rinsed
100g bag Waitrose Watercress, large stalks removed
4 salad onions, thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted
150g Greek-style natural yogurt
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
2 tbsp pomegranate seeds


1. Crush the whole spices from the pack in a pestle and mortar
or with a rolling pin, then mix into the base sauce.

2. Stir in the Rustic Rogan Josh sauce then brush half of it over the lamb. Cook the lamb under a preheated grill or barbecue for 6–8 minutes, turning once or twice and basting with the remaining sauce until nicely browned but still a little pink in the centre. Transfer to a warm plate and leave to rest for 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, toss together the chick peas, watercress, salad onions, olive oil, red wine vinegar and cumin seeds. Divide the salad and lamb steaks between 4 plates.

4. Stir together the yogurt and mint and spoon into a serving
bowl. Scatter over the pomegranate seeds and serve alongside the lamb and salad.

Cook’s tip

If the sun is shining, try cooking this on the barbecue. Or to make party kebabs, cut the steaks into thin strips, thread onto skewers and grill for 2–3 minutes on each side until nicely browned and cooked through. Serve with the yogurt dip.
