Kebabs of all types, sizes, and shapes are standard in Afghan cooking for both Jews & Muslims. They are easily assembled and probably most basic recipes of all cooking, stretching back to earliest, primitive times. I saw two workman barbecuing their lamb kebabs over a few twigs in an open field, resting skewers on a thick branch cut from a nearby tree, and turning them every now and then. They then wrapped a piece of Afghan bread around skewer and pulled off crisp brown meat. 1. Mix everything together & marinate at room temperature for a minimum of 1 hour or preferably in refrigerator overnight. 2. Put 4 or 5 cubes of chicken, without onion, on each metal skewer and broil over charcoal for 10 or 15 minutes. 3. Serve hot with Afghan bread, salad, and pickles. NOTE: My Afghan mentor related that turmeric was much used in Afghanistan in many ways and had a great reputation for its health-giving properties. It is reputed to cleanse the blood, and a little turmeric in ones morning milk would a provide day of good health.
