Just like Jahas


Can't tell the difference between this and the one from our favourite take-away of years ago.

Mise en place


  1. Line a grill tray with silver foil and place the lamb strips together with a little of the marinade on the grill tray (see picture)
  2. Grill for about 7 minutes
  3. Turn the slices over and grill for another 7 minutes. Check regularly and test to see if they are done to your liking. Don't be over-worried about the marinade burning, it gives it great flavour and does not taste the least bit burnt. Do worry about the lamb drying out, see Chef's Notes.

Serving suggestions

Serve with naan breads, pillau rice and a green salad.

Chef's notes

If you don't have black cumin, just use white cumin instead.

Adjust the chili levels to suit your tastes, this can be fairly hot with these quantities, depending upon the types of chili you use.

When I originally made this dish, I had planned to make Balti lamb tikka, but changed my mind half-way through. I would not have sliced the lamb so thinly if I had known I was to grill it. Delicious even so!
