About Licious Mutton
First off, what quality can you expect when you order from our website? So, we source our mutton from approved partners. Our goats and lambs are pasture-raised and grass-fed. Additionally, they are hand-picked by experts at the right weight and size for tender meat.
Once picked, the meat undergoes 150+ safety & quality checks to ensure you get the best pieces. The meat is then rested for up to 12 hours but is temperature-controlled for freshness between 0-4℃, so you always get fresh, never frozen meat.
To save time and make cooking more convenient for you, our expert meat technicians cut, clean and trim the mutton. Use your orders straight out of the pack with zero prep!
Some Types of Mutton Cuts on Licious
There are many types of cuts available on our website. Here are a few of them:
- Goat Mince (Keema)
We use clean, boneless cuts of goat meat and grind them to perfection. The texture of the keema is delicate but the flavour is robust. Use it in salads, pasta, wraps and more.
- Lean Goat Curry Cut
This consists of both bone-in and boneless pieces of fat-trimmed meat. The pieces have been cut from the ribs, neck and legs. We recommend this cut for curries.
- Mutton Liver Chunks
Known for its intense and rich flavour, mutton liver (also known as Kaleji) is best enjoyed in a simple preparation such as Sauteed Liver and Onions, spicy Kaleji Fry, Moroccan Fried Liver etc. This meat is best cooked in a pan or oven and should be cooked until done and light pink in the centre. Do not overcook it!
- Lamb – Coarse Mince
Our Coarse Lamb Mince is made using cleaned and trimmed pieces of boneless lamb with the right amount of fat to add flavour and richness. Coarse mince is ground using a thicker blade, which makes the meat choppy and more textured. This kind of mince keeps its shape and therefore, is perfect for making burger patties, kebabs, koftas and other meatballs.
- Goat Biryani Cut
Licious Goat Biryani Cut has meaty chunks of bone-in and boneless goat meat that will turn soft and juicy when cooked and add richness to your lip-smacking biryanis. Pro-tip: Low heat will help to bring out the flavours of the meat and prevent overcooking.
