Directions

  1. Whisk yogurt, lemon juice, onion, garlic, ginger, garam masala, paprika, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl until combined.
  2. Toss lamb and salt into marinade; mix until lamb pieces are coated evenly. Cover mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, or at least 4 hours.
  3. Skewer lamb pieces so they barely touch. Wipe off excess marinade with a paper towel. Brush with vegetable oil and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Grill skewers on medium heat until lamb springs back to the touch, about 5 to 7 minutes on each side.
  6. Garnish with red onions, lemon wedges, and chopped cilantro as desired.

I used the marinade recipe on lamb blade chops overnight, blotted off excess liquid and prepared in a grill pan on the stovetop. Delicious!

No change just as it was

Excellent! Follow recipe, marinated overnight. Will do again. Tky

Didn’t skewer and cooked cubes on a grill pan. Served in flat bread with hummus, plain Greek yogurt, and baby arugula. Yum!!

I strictly followed the recipe but served in on saffron quinoa. Everyone loved it.

Absolutely delicious. Made it exactly as written. Only had about 6 or 7 hours to marinate but still had tremendous flavor.
