Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. For the spiced rice, place all the ingredients, except for the coriander, in a suitable pan. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Leave to simmer until the water has evaporated (roughly 15 minutes).
  3. Check the rice is cooked, adding more water to the pan if not. Finish with the chopped coriander.
  4. For the marinade, remove the chilli seeds then place the chillies in a food processor with the sea salt and blitz. Add the spices and garlic and blitz further until smooth.
  5. Add the peppers and red wine vinegar, blitz until smooth then add the olive oil, tomato puree and paprika. Marinate the lamb rumps and leave for at least 6 hours (overnight preferably).
  6. To cook,place a frying pan onto the stove and add a trickle of oil. Once hot, place the rumps into the pan and seal on all sides.
  7. Place in the oven and check after 10 minutes. The rump should be cooked 'medium' by this stage.
  8. Leave for a further 10-15 minutes for cooking further. Once out of the oven, leave to rest for 2-3 minutes, then slice. Serve on the spiced rice.
