Keto Tandoori Style Lamb Chops Recipe

Looking for a spice marinate with warm bold flavors? This Keto Tandoori Style Lamb Chops will awaken your taste buds guaranteed.

All the warm spices you come to expect from Tandoori but grilled right in the backyard


Tandoori Lamb is one of my favorite classic Indian dishes. The marinade is packed with unique flavors and ingredients that make this an outstanding entree to make any time of year.

Normally yogurt is used to marinate meats in Indian and Mediterranean cooking but I’ve found that sour cream works just as well and tends to have less carbs then most yogurts.

I must say that I’ve tried marinating the lamb for only 4-6 hours and though it’s still tasty marinating overnight produces a far superior final product.

I used Lamb porterhouse chops as well as a rack of lamb. Both are amazing for grilling. The Porterhouse chops tend to be a little less expensive but not by much.

  2. 30 minutes before cooking set lamb out to come up to room temperature. Pat the lamb dry removing any excess marinade. Lightly season wiuth salt and pepper
  3. Light your coals or turn your gas grill to high. Somewhere between 500 and 600 degrees is ideal.
  4. Grill the chops over direct heat for about 3-4 minutes before flipping the chops. Turn every 3 minutes until you develop a nice char and reach desired internal temperature. Med rare is about 123-130 degrees F.

Recipe Substitutions

Depending on your grill I would definitely suggest lump charcoal if at all possible but if you have a gas grill that will work.

If you live in an apartment or don’t have a grill set your oven to broil and flip half way. Better yet if you have an air fryer that would do a fantastic job as well.

If lamb is not your thing, this dish can be prepared with pork or chicken just the same.

And though the glowing red color from the red food coloring is traditional, it adds no flavor and can be omitted without affecting the taste one bit.
