Lamb chops and mediterrean rice

As we begin this new year 2019 the recipe that came to my mind was a delicious dish Lamb chops with Mediterranean rice as my youngest son has been expanding his palate and had recently tried lamb at a Iranian restaurant and so the little guy has now fallen in love with it so much so that now this dish is a regular at my dinner table.

For the Lamb chops here’s the recipe ~
Lamb chops – 1 pack fromm Costco usually has 8 pieces
Crushed garlic – 2 tbsp
Parsley chopped – 1/2 cup
Black pepper – 1 tbsp
Paprika – 1 tbsp
Sumac – 1 tbsp
Oregano – 1 tbsp
Olive oil – 2 tbsp
Turmeric – 1 tsp
Lemon sliced – 1
Cumin – 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tbsp
Mix all the above ingredients and make a smooth paste , apply this to the lamb chops and marinate for at least 30 mins or overnight .
Preheat the oven to 350 F and cook the meat for 30 mins do not leave it the oven as the meat tends to dry up also before serving let the lamb sit
at room temperature for at least 10 mins , it will taste yummier 🙂 
serve with some mediterranean rice 

For the Mediterranean rice here is the recipe ~Basmati rice – 2 cups washed and soaked for at least 30 mins
Chicken stock – 4 cups
Black cardamon – 2
Bay leaves - 4-5
Sumac – 1 tbsp for garnish
Olive oil – 2 tbsp
Turmeric – 1 tsp
Lemon sliced – 1 tbsp

Heat the pan with olive oil add the spices sauce for a few minutes add salt turmeric and the lemon juice and the chicken stock . Once the stock warms up add the rice ( wash and soak the rice at least for 30 mins ) . Mix gently and let the rice cook for almost 18 minutes cover the rice , once the rice is cooked it will separate out add the Sumac as a garnish and serve with the Lamb chops 
Njoy ! Have a happy healthy and prosperous new year 🎆🎉🎆
