  1. Soak the nut (not necessary) in water to soften.
  2. Drain without any water and knead well with the minced meat and all the ingredients.
  3. Correct the taste in salt, pepper and spices.
  4. Shape into long narrow kebabs and pass through the straws.
  5. Grease a pan well and place the kebabs on it. We can spread them on top with a little olive oil.
  6. Bake on the grill for about 20 minutes, or on the barbecue, turning them at regular intervals, so that they turn brown on all sides.
For the dip
  1. Simply mix the ingredients and season with salt and pepper. It is better to stay 12-24 hours to bind the taste.
  2. Serve the kebabs on hot, small Arabic pies with plenty of chopped parsley and tomato and accompany with the yogurt dip.
