Why Use Lemon Juice and Cumin in a Marinade?
Why use lemon in a marinade? Lemon juice helps to tenderize the lamb while also adding a tangy flavor. Combined with the cumin, it makes a fantastic combination.
Cumin is a spice that is native to the Middle East and North Africa. It’s an aromatic, earthy spice with a nutty flavor and a slightly sweet aftertaste. Its pungent aroma and warm flavor are what make it so popular in lamb dishes.
Cumin is even grown in Afghanistan!
The garlic provides a subtle, earthy flavor that helps to round out the marinade.
Afghans Love Lamb.
We put the lamb in everything, and luckily lamb is becoming easier and easier to get in grocery markets in the US. Try lamb in our national dish, kabuli pulao.
