  • Chop onion and garlic cloves.
  • Crush the cardamom seeds.
  • Cut the meat into small pieces and then chop them finely together.
  • While chopping, add the white and yolk of the eggs, chopped onion, garlic, all the other spices, salt and a tbsp of clarified butter.
  • Knead well together. Shape into kebabs on iron skewers.
  • Then roast the kebabs on live wood-charcoals, placed in a rectangular open fire box, or in an earthen oven or an electric oven.
