1 cup all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons milk

2 eggs

2 cups fresh breadcrumbs

1 large handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper

12 French-trimmed lamb cutlets or rib chops

1/2 cup olive oil

Herbed yoghurt, for service, recipe follows

Herbed Yoghurt

4 ounces or (1/2 cup) thick Greek yoghurt

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 Tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf or Italian parsley leaves

2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Add the flour to a shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish, lightly beat the milk and eggs. In a third dish, toss together the bread crumbs, parsley, cilantro, lemon zest, and cumin, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Dip the lamb cutlets into the flour, then in the beaten egg and finally into the breadcrumbs. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Panfry the cutlets in batches, until they are golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the lamb cutlets to a warm platter and serve with the herbed yoghurt.
