  3. To make marinade for the lamb, blend together ginger, garlic, yoghurt, black pepper, 1 teaspoon cumin, chilli powder, garam masala and lemon juice until smooth using a hand held blender or food processor.

  5. Preheat a chargrill or large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and cook the chops for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest for 3 minutes.
  6. Add the cauliflower to the lentil salad and gently stir to combine. Serve lamb chops with lentil salad and lemon wedge.
