Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Combine ginger and garlic in a bowl. Add the lamb and coat evenly. Set aside to marinate.
Step 2 Boil rice in 1 1/2 cups water in a saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes.
Step 3 Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over high heat. Add lamb and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side, for medium. Remove from pan and rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
Step 4 Combine yoghurt with chopped mint. Divide rice between four plates, top with lamb and serve with mint yoghurt and a large green salad.
Double the amount of lamb and make lamb wraps later in the week. Wrap lamb slices in lavash bread with mint, light mayo, sliced onion and shredded lettuce.
