Cook the rice in boiling salted water following pack instructions. Drain and immediately run under cold water until the rice is completely cold.
Meanwhile, put the oil, vinegar, garlic and cumin in a screw-top jar. Season generously and shake well to mix. Toast the almonds in a small frying pan, stirring, for 1-2 mins. Cool, then roughly chop.
Mix the rice with the almonds, tomatoes, olives and parsley. Heat a griddle pan and season the lamb well. When the pan is hot, cook the lamb, turning occasionally, for 7-8 mins. Remove from the pan, cover with foil and leave to rest for 2 mins.
Pour the dressing over the rice salad and mix well. Top with the lamb cutlets and serve.
