2 tablespoons rapeseed or sunflower oil
350–400g lamb leg steak, cut into 3–4cm cubes
1⁄2 medium cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets
1⁄2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
A generous squeeze of lemon juice
A squeeze of orange juice (optional)
1 smallish carrot (about 75g), peeled and coarsely grated (or cut into matchsticks)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
A little torn mint, to finish (optional)
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the lamb pieces, stir-fry for a minute or two until starting to colour nicely, then add the cauliflower and cumin.
Cook over a medium-high heat for about 8 minutes, stirring or tossing from time to time, until the lamb and cauliflower are both lightly browned, and the cauliflower is softened a little but still nicely al dente.
Throw in the garlic and sesame seeds, cook for a minute more, then add the chickpeas, a good squeeze of lemon juice, a pinch of salt and a grinding of pepper. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes to heat the chickpeas through, then take off the heat.
Heap the mixture into warm serving bowls. Scatter over the carrot, then give the whole thing a squeeze of orange juice (or just more lemon juice if you prefer).
Scatter with mint if you’ve got it. Leave for a few minutes to allow the lamb time to rest, then serve.
