Crispy lamb cutlets

Lamb cutlets have been a favourite staple for ages; this recipe puts a little twist and a bit of fun to the usual cutlet.

SERVES: 6 PREP TIME: 10 mins COOK TIME: 20 mins


  • ¾ cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 24 lamb cutlets


  1. Place all of the sesame seeds and spices in a food processor or blender and blend for 5 seconds, just enough to combine but still keep the sesame seeds partially intact. This will be your coating for the cutlets.
  2. Coat the cutlets well in the sesame and spice mixture… you can coat them, let them sit for a few minutes and coat them for a second time if you feel it is needed.
  3. Once all the cutlets are well coated place them on an oven tray and grill on both sides until golden. Alternatively the cutlets can be lightly fried over a medium heat or baked in the oven.
  4. Cooking time can vary depending on the cutlet thickness.
  5. They can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days in an airtight container.
