Lamb Bihari Boti Recipe

Since the sun is now shining brightly, and summer holidays will soon begin, most of you would be hosting BBQ parties for family and friends. In my family, this is the most awaited season as we get to enjoy some delicious meaty treats with some fancy mocktails and summer desserts. Although we plan for a variety of different items in the menu, adding lamb is definitely a must and the ‘Lamb Bihari Boti’ is an absolute favourite amongst everyone! 

The tender meaty kebabs marinated with lots of different spices and condiments, are really flavourful and something everyone enjoys the most! 

The Major Ingredient - The Lamb! 

Lamb is one of the most exciting ingredients that can be used to create lot of different recipes. 

Lamb Try it, Love it

The EU funded Lamb Try it, Love it campaign has enabled people to discover the unique flavours of lamb at their convenience. The protein packed premium lamb produced by European farmers ensures the use of sustainable practices and is a praiseworthy contribution to the local economies. 

Variety of Cuts of Lamb

Being a versatile ingredient, lamb can be used to prepare lots of dishes and the availability of different cuts enables us to create incredible lamb dishes that aren't just quick and easy to prepare, but the health benefits are immense too! 

Health Benefits of Lamb

Lamb contains essential nutrients and proteins as well as 7 vitamins and minerals including vitamin B12 and niacin that leads to a healthy lifestyle. Once you try it, you're definitely going to love it! For more information on the campaign and for interesting new recipes, check out lamb try it, love it.

1/2 tsp Chilli flakes

Fry the onions until brown, cool them, and blend them into a paste before adding it to the meat. 
Add few drops of oil, and blend ginger (do not add water), then add it to the lamb strips. 
Add 100 grams papaya paste (Ready made papaya paste is easily available at Asian stores, otherwise fresh papaya can be used to make a paste).
Add all the other ingredients in the meat, and mix well. 
Cover the dish with a cling film and refrigerate it for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
2-3 hours before BBQ, add 50 grams papaya paste and mix well.
For the BBQ, use skewers to thread the meat.
For longer strips, thread it at least 3-4 times so the meat doesn't fall off the skewer while on BBQ (thread once per inch of meat strip).
Cook the lamb strips for 20-30 minutes on good constant heat, or as required depending on how you like consuming the meat, either well done or rare. I prefer mine well done, so that takes up to 30 minutes to cook.

Make sure there is no access water in the marinade. 
Serve the lamb boti kebabs hot in a skewer with parathas (Indian flatbread, either homemade or store bought) and assorted chutneys. My personal favourite is the yogurt dip, either the one prepared with tamarind sauce, cumin powder and salt or the green mint yogurt dip.
While cooking the meat on BBQ, make sure to grease the meat with some cooking oil and spray a bit of water to ensure the meat stays soft and juicy.
Quantity of the meat needed to serve guests can also vary depending on how extensive the menu of the BBQ party is.
For guidance, we were 8 people, and had 4 different BBQ items including Bihari Boti, Tikka, Seekh Kebabs and Malai Boti (1 kg each item) along with corns, bread and dips. All this food was enough for our party and everyone easily enjoyed generous portions.
