Method

 
Fry the onion and garlic in a little olive oil until soft and translucent and then add the spices. Allow to fry for a minute then transfer to a food processor.

Blend with just enough olive oil to make a thick paste. Rub the paste onto the lamb chops and allow to rest for 2–3 minutes while you get the griddle pan heated and you make the cucumber salad.

Slice the cucumber and onion thinly and add to a medium bowl.

Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar and add the salt and pepper. Pour over the cucumber and onion and allow to marinate for 10–15 minutes before serving.

In a hot griddle pan, cook your lamb chops for 3–4 minutes per side and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving with the cucumber salad.
