  1. Pat the lamb chops dry on kitchen paper and rub all over with the mint sauce and red chilli; season well. Set aside to marinate for 10 mins at room temperature. 
  2. Meanwhile, make the salsa. In a small bowl, combine the pomegranate seeds, red onion, mint and lime juice with a pinch of salt and put in the fridge to chill. 
  3. For the rosti, mix together the grated parsnip with the parsley and cornflour in a bowl, season and set aside.
  4. To cook the lamb, heat ½ tbsp oil in a pan and fry for 3-4 mins each side, turning once for even browning. For well-done lamb, cook for an additional 1-2 mins each side. 
  5. Heat the remaining 1½ tbsp oil in a nonstick frying pan and divide the rosti into 2 heaped mounds in the pan. Cook over a medium heat for 2-3 mins each side, pressing the mixture down with the spatula to shape into rosti. Cook until crisp and golden-brown and transfer to a plate. 
  6. Serve the rosti with the lamb chops with the pomegranate salsa spooned over.
