Guest Post: Indian Style Lamb/Mutton Chops by Shailja Tomar Gonsalves

A guest post from one of my very talented blogger friend Shailja Tomar.  I was scratching my head who will be my guest this month and first person who came to my mind was Shailja.   I asked her if she would like to be my guest and she said yes without hesitating at a short notice which I appreciate from the bottom of my heart.

unnamed-3I connected with Shailja through one of the food groups and since then we have become friends. Shailja is such a sweet and humble person.  Inspite of working and taking care of her little one she is creating new dishes almost every day.  So, I asked her one day, Shailja you don't get tired, she goes I do but its okay I enjoy it.  Shailja blogs at Sweet & Savory by Shailja.  Do check out her blog for a wide selection of recipes.

Hello everyone , my name is Shailja and I blog from shailjatomar.wordpress.com

When Sarika asked me to do a guest post for her I was thrilled and very excited . I came to know Sarika through a food group and have become good friends since then.  I wanted to do something special for Sarika and came up with lamb/mutton chops as they are one of my friends and families all time favorite.
These succulent mutton chops are cooked in Indian spices and are very versatile & terrific served as finger food for parties or can also be served as a side dish or even as a main dish.
