  1. Step 1

    In a food processor, blend ½ cup mint with the shallot, cumin, paprika, garam masala, allspice, chilli flakes, 1 tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper until coarsely chopped. Add oil and process until marinade is well blended. In a large baking dish, combine marinade and lamb cutlets and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  2. Step 2

    On a large serving platter, scatter rocket and onion.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat a barbecue to medium-high heat. Pat lamb dry and barbecue for 2-3 mins each side or until char marks form and lamb is medium-rare (54°C) in the centre. Place lamb cutlets on the platter. Sprinkle lamb with salt, squeeze lemon juice over and drizzle with oil.
  4. Step 4

    Scatter remaining mint leaves over the lamb cutlets and serve.
