Monday Munchies: Indian Spiced Lamb Steaks and Carrot Salad


2 lamb steaks
2 carrots
1 red chilli
a bunch of fresh coriander
15g sultanas
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
the juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil

For the indian spice mix:
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 chilli powder
1 tbsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves

The Method:

combine all the spices in a bowl to make the indian spice mix. Coat the lamb steaks in olive oil and then rub the spice mix in and make sure the steaks are covered on all sides. You can either pan fry the steak or cook them under a hot grill. I chose to pan fry them for around 4 mins each side.

Whilst the steaks are cooking, cover the sultanas with boiled water (or lamb stock for extra flavour) and leave until they become plump and juicy. Toast the sesame seeds and cumin seeds in a dry pan for few minutes until slightly brown and then leave to cool. Peel and grate the carrots and add to a mixing bowl. Coarsely chop most of the coriander (leave a little bit for garnish) and add this to the bowl of carrots. Then add the olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice and the sesame seeds, cumin seeds and the sultanas and the salad is done.

By now the steaks should be done, so put these on a plate to rest for a few minutes. Now I did cheat a bit here and used pre made parathas which just needed to be heated under a grill for 1 minute each side. Next slice the lamb into strips, chop the chilli and tear the remaining coriander and sprinkle over the lamb.

To assemble to paratha add some of the salad to the paratha and a few strips of lamb on top then drizzle some yoghurt on and enjoy.

Well, that's all for now.




  1. That looks soooo good - I'll defo be doing that, probably with chicken tho!!

  2. I love fakeaway, this looks just the same as you would get if you ordered from the takeaway. lovely photos

  3. oh this looks so so tasty! I love steak and and the carrot salad sounds great! :)

  4. Love all the spices you use. I'd have to give the lamb a miss being veggie, but it would work well with paneer.

  5. That looks absolutely delicious, and quite simple to boot!

  6. This looks super delish! Just the kind of thing i'd love to get stuck into. I'd either use chicken or quorn fillets as i'm not keen on lamb, but the spices sound GREAT.

  7. I am not a meat eater but these pics are super cool and you look like you can make some seriously good food, Id love to try make a vegetarian alternative :D x
