Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Tandoori-Style Lamb Skewers

1 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 cup plain yogurt
3 tablespoons sweet paprika
4 tablespoons Indian curry powder
1 cup chopped cilantro leaves, plus leaves for garnish
2 teaspoons kosher salt or Hawaiian sea salt
2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
2 pound boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
8 metal skewers
4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces

Recipe Directions for Grilled Tandoori-Style Lamb Skewers

  1. Heat the cumin, garam masala and cardamom in a dry pan, over low heat, until fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the onion powder and garlic then transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add the yogurt, paprika, curry powder, cilantro, salt and pepper.

  2. Thread 4 cubes of lamb on each skewer, alternating with scallion pieces and leaving about 1/3 of the skewer as a handle. Arrange them in a shallow glass baking dish and pour the yogurt mixture over them, (turn to coat if needed). Allow to marinate for 1 hour to overnight, in the refrigerator. Brush the grill with an oiled paper towel and preheat it to medium-high. Arrange the skewers at angle for nice grill marks and grill 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium. Transfer the skewers to a serving platter and garnish with lime wedges and cilantro.

  3. Serve with basmati rice with cilantro or orzo with spinach and butter and a side of raita (yogurt sauce with vegetables), if desired.
