Lamb cutlets
They are expensive cuts, but the most delicious and tender. If you want to cut the cost, use leg steaks or lamb chops.


  1. Mix together the pomegranate molasses, lemon juice, olive oil and chilli powder, then toss the cutlets in it. Cover and leave in a cool place for 2-3 hrs.

  2. When you are ready, heat the grill to high. Lift the cutlets out of the marinade and scrape what is left into a bowl. Mix the yogurt into the leftover marinade and add 1 tsp salt. Brush some of the mix over the cutlets on both sides and place on the grill tray – make sure it’s about 5cm below the grill. Cook for 2-3 mins each side, brushing with additional yogurt mix when turning. The cutlets should be browned and just beginning to scorch. Serve with lemon wedges.
