Add chickpeas and tomato. Cover. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Add coriander leaves. Stir to combine.
Meanwhile, combine seasoning and remaining oil in a glass or ceramic dish. Add lamb. Turn to coat. Heat a greased barbecue plate or chargrill over medium-high heat. Cook lamb for 3 to 4 minutes each side for medium, or until cooked to your liking.
Divide chickpea mixture and lamb between plates. Serve with lemon wedges and coriander.
Coriander: Coriander root has a strong flavour, and is often used in curry pastes and soup bases. Wash the base well to remove dirt before using. To store, tightly wrap washed roots in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.
