About Lamb Tawa Tikka

Its been long that I have posted either on Plattershare or my blog because I am blessed with a baby boy & I was very busy in taking care of him. When I received a call from Kirti about this opportunity of using Licious product I became so happy as I was thinking of writing from past so many days but couldn't spare time for the same.
However this opportunity became a reason for me to push myself & do what I love the most i.e cooking & sharing recipe. Thank you Plattershare for giving me this opportunity. The product which I have received is boneless lamb leg cubes.
Lamb leg has good amount of unsaturated fats so it is good for health despite of being a red meat. It is also very high in protein, iron , several vitamins, zinc & these can be absorbed very easily by our body.
Additionally it is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acid so can be used as a substitue for fish. So keeping in mind all these health benefits I have made Lamb Tawa Tikka with a fresh spring onions & yoghurt marinade . I love this recipe because it requires only few ingredients & a tawa so it can easily be cooked by busy moms, hubbys who cook occaisonally & bachelors too. Enjoy this recipe..

  • Before sharing the method let me confess this. I usually make lamb curry which needs no marination. (See Notes)
  • So the tip is don't keep marinated lamb for longer & don't overcook it.

How to do it - For Marination

  • Mix spring onion paste,yoghurt, gram flour, ginger garlic chili paste, salt & lemon juice.
  • Now dip lamb cubes in it. Mix well so that all pieces could be nicely coated.

  • Heat a tawa either non-stick or regular iron one.Sprinkle some oil.
  • Put marinated pieces on it & cover with a bowl. Cook each side for 7-8 min on a low flame. Keep changing the sides in between.
  • Serve with mint chutney & sprinkle some roasted sesame seeds & fresh mint leaves to add some crunch & freshness.

Recipe Notes

This Lamb Tawa Tikka I have tried for the first time. So I have marinated few pieces kept them in refrigerator for 4hrs & cooked.
I have tried instant marination & cooking with other batch. To my surprise the second batch cooked faster & was more tender when cooked. So I googled & found out that lamb leg is already very tender & if kept marinated in frig it gets harder.
  • Try instant marination for better taste. if you are planning to cook after 2-3 hrs of marination then increase your cooking time.
  • Always cook on slow flame to retain flavor & prevent it from burning.
  • Heat tawa properly to avoid sticking of food.
  • Gram flour can be avoided . I have used it so that the marination sticks to the pieces.It also tastes good.
  • I used mustard oil you can use olive oil or rice bran oil or any vegetable oil of your choice
  • You can use same marinade as a chutney with tikka.
