Lamb tikka is the lamb marinated in a spiced yogurt marinade. In India, you'll mostly find tikka in Punjabi cuisine. Any meat can be used for tikka, so you can easily make chicken tikka and more. Try this fantastic paneer tikka, for example.

How long has it been since you last cooked lamb? People under 35 rarely buy or cook lamb, particularly in North Western European countries such as France or England. Lamb consumption is declining due to millennials' ‘flexitarian' lifestyles because they never even tried it. What a missed opportunity!

Try It- You'll Love It

Thanks to the EU-funded Lamb Try it, Love it campaign, people can now discover lamb's convenience and unique flavors. The lamb tikka does lamb meat much justice, modernizing today's take on lamb while highlighting the umami flavors that make lamb so wonderful.

Furthermore, European lamb is a premium and high-quality meat. Sustainable farming practices are used on European farms in remote regions. In the end, farmers contribute significantly to their local economies, as well as to consumers. Fresh and tender lamb is the best! Cooking with this ingredient is so exciting!

Lamb is a versatile ingredient that isn't only used for a one-roasting wonder with mint sauce but can also be used in a wide variety of dishes. 

This dish is often served over Slow Cooker Cabbage “Pasta.” Still, you can prefer eating it without utensils over Miracle Rice, scooping it up with Keto Naan.

  • Yield: 8 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 1 Hour


For the marinade

  • 1 cup canned, full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 head roasted garlic, pureed, or 3 cloves raw garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 pounds boneless lamb leg sirloin, cubed

For the masala sauce

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced (about 1¼ cups)
  • 1 head roasted garlic, pureed, or 3 cloves raw garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 large tomatoes (preferably yellow), chopped (reserve juices)
  • 1 teaspoon stevia glycerite
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 0.66 cups canned, full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Keto Naan, for serving (optional)

How to Make It

  1. In a large bowl, combine coconut milk, garlic, ginger, cayenne, cumin, coriander, and salt. Toss the cubed lamb in the marinade and coat well. Place in the refrigerator overnight or for two hours.
  2. An oily sauté pan over medium heat should be heated. Cook the onion, frequently stirring, for 8 minutes, until golden. Cook the garlic, ginger, tomato paste, garam masala, and cayenne for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Boil the tomatoes with their juices, salt, and stevia.
  3. The heat should be reduced to low, the lid covered, and the simmering time should be 15 minutes. After adding the coconut milk, please return it to a simmer and let it simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Keep warm after removing from heat.
  4. Heat a broiler or grill to a high temperature. The oven rack should be placed in the upper-middle position (about 6 inches from the heat). Skewer the lamb cubes about 14 inches apart after flipping halfway through cooking; grill or broil the chicken until slightly charred on the outside, about 2 minutes per side.
  5. Allow the lamb to rest for five minutes after it has been cooked. Warm the sauce and stir in the chunks. Add the cilantro and taste, adding more salt if necessary. Naan may be served with this dish if desired.
