In a pestle with a mortar crush the cumin seeds then add the garlic infused oil, chili and some salt and pepper. Mash to a paste.
Stir in the lemon juice and olive oil and pour half the mix over the lamb chops and leave to marinate. Set the other half aside.

Place on the heat and bring to the boil then turn down the heat slightly and boil gently for 10 mins.
Turn the heat off and stir through the reserved dressing. Cover and leave for another 10 mins.
Meanwhile heat a griddle pan or grill to high and cook the lamb for about 3-5 mins on each side or until cooked to your liking.
