Lamb Cutlets in Moroccan Style

I have been meaning to write this post for quite some time but was caught up with a lot of stuff! My friend is visiting me for the first time and has kept me busy with all the chatting and going around 🙂

Okay coming back to today’s post, it’s December….my favorite month of the year! It’s almost time for Christmas and New Year and everyone is in a holiday mood. And there’s so much food everywhere. I was so confused the other day at the supermarket about what I should buy! It seemed to be overflowing with choices. Finally I decided to buy some lamb cutlets and make a nice meal at home 🙂

I chose to make it Moroccan style as I was in mood for some spiced up food. The recipe is pretty easy and quite safe too for first timers. It could be served as an appetizer or as a main course with flavored rice or fresh bread.

Happy Holidays!! 🙂
