This flavoursome lamb dish is the ultimate winter warmer.

Taj Mahal Lamb with Almond Rice

Serves 2

1 pack Silver Fern Farms 
Lamb Steaks
1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp cardamom
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp cornflour
1 cup apricots, in juice
1 tbsp sesame oil
½ cup sliced almonds
2⁄3 cup jasmine rice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup chicken stock
Fresh coriander & nasturtium flowers, to garnish

Remove lamb steaks from packaging and leave to come to room temperature for 5 minutes.

Combine all spices and cornflour in a screw-top jar. Shake
to combine. Use about half of the spice mix as a rub, massaging it well into the lamb steaks. Combine remaining mix with apricots and juice in a food processor. Blend to combine. Set aside. Heat sesame oil in a saucepan and sauté almonds, taking care they do not burn. Remove almonds with a slotted spoon.

Add rice to saucepan and sauté for a few seconds to coat the rice in the fragrant oil. Add 1 ¼ cups water to rice. Add ½ teaspoon of salt. Bring to the boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook rice for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a frying pan and cook lamb on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes each side. Remove lamb from pan and rest on a serving platter. Deglaze pan with chicken stock. Add apricot-spice mixture to pan. Cook stirring constantly until a sauce is formed. Slice lamb thickly and rest. Pile rice into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve with apricot sauce. Garnish lamb with fresh coriander and nasturtium flowers
