Lamb Tikka Masala

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Grilling


  • 1 lb. boneless lamb, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 fresh green chile, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 tbsp. garam masala mix (see recipe)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 20 fresh bay leaves
  • 20 fresh whole green chiles
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 naan or other flat bread
  • 1 recipe cucumber yogurt raita (see recipe)


  1. Combine lamb cubes, ginger, garlic, chile, cilantro, masala mix, turmeric, vinegar and yogurt. Toss well to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  2. Thread lamb cubes, bay leaves, and chiles onto skewers. Grill lamb skewers over medium-hot coals, turning every 2 minutes, until well browned but still juicy and slightly pink inside, 8-10 minutes. Warm the naan by setting directly on the grill, 1 minute per side.

  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve hot with warm naan and cucumber yogurt raita.
