Notes from Rouba

Method

Step 1.

Place the rice in a sieve and wash until water runs clear. Set aside.

In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and lightly brown the lamb cutlets on both sides. Remove and set aside on wire rack.

Step 2.

Using the same pot, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat, add chopped onions and saute until translucent. Stir in garlic and chilli and continue to cook for about 30 seconds. Stir in the spices and tomato. Then add the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well, heating everything through.

Step 3.

Arrange the lamb cutlets over the rice. Add the water, put a lid on, and cook on low heat for approximately 20 minutes or until the rice is cooked.

Both my husband and daughter love the fact that there’s meat and also rice and I’m a sucker for spinach so it works perfectly ! It’s soo easy to make and so delicious. The flavours just tie in all together. Thanks Rouba for this simple yet amazing dish 🙂 x
