Just as the name says, this is a wonderful recipe that has a beautiful blend of coffee with Lamb. Does that sound strange??? Well even I thought so when I heard it for the first time. But somehow my instincts told me it would be great. Yet I kept thinking and thinking many times before I gave this a try.
This was actually seen on a cookery show and I just noted it down with just the main points. Later,I had to sit and recall the entire steps what the Chef was doing to get mine right. Yet I made changes to mine and gave it a try. The moment the kitchen was filled with the aroma of coffee, my son came running in asking” Mom what is special today?”…lol….he now knows that his mom is upto something when the not so common smell fills the house….lol..I told him Surpriseeee!!!! and asked him to wait…
The wait was worth, when he was served this tender, coffee infused lamb and my daughter too was very happy on it. They had it to their full and has put requests to make them again. You can see my daughter all assisting me and being a part of my shots with all the patience for that tender piece she holds…..lol… We all thoroughly enjoyed the dish.
This is perfect to be had as an appetizer or snack and is very simple and easy to make.

. Marinate the lamb or mutton pieces with all the mentioned ingredients and let it refrigerate for about 2-3 hours.
