While you won’t find it on the menus of many Kansas barbecue joints, lamb’s strong flavor is actually a great match for a bit of char. Boti Kabab — on the tandoori menu at India Palace — consists of chunks of marinated lamb cooked in a clay oven, then served on a sizzling-hot platter with peppers and onions. The seasoning is rich and earthy with a hint of heat, and the portion is big enough to fill two people.

Where to get it: India Palace, 129 E. Tenth St.

What you’ll pay: $13.95 plus tax

Try it with: Nan — which comes with the meal unless you choose rice instead.

Also on the menu: So many, many Indian delights. Curries, kormas, tikka masalas and vindaloos (hot!) of chicken, beef, seafood and lamb are only a few. There’s a menu section devoted to vegetarian entrees, plus desserts and numerous varieties of nan and other Indian breads. India Palace also offers a lunch buffet seven days a week.

I blame part of that on my photography — there's only so much you can do with an iPhone, especially with dark subjects. I promise it looked better in person ;)

I'm not a big fan of lamb,....a little too gamy for me but I've eaten goat meat that was as tender and tasty as a fat marbled rib eye steak. This kabab looks delicious and I'm sure it is. I'll try it the next time I'm in town. Thanks for the tip!
