I had a craving for lamb cutlets so I made a healthier version, instead of breadcrumbs I used almond meal and it was tasty. The lamb cutlets goes well with spicy potatoes which are coated in coriander, cumin, paprika, curry powder and mustard seeds. Serve this delicious dish with green leafy salad.

500g baby potatoes cut in quarters
¼ cup olive oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp turmeric
¼ tsp chili flakes (add more for a Spicer kick)
1 clove garlic crushed
