Whatever Next? Sally's Amazing Kababs
My oven blew up last week and I was wondering what to do as we had planned an impromptu party for Nehru’s 55th birthday. I had even decided to bake two very unusual cakes, the recipes having being sent by my lifelong friend Rosemarie Monteiro ( nee Rodrigues). Both of us do nothing but email recipes throughout the year and this has helped us to keep in touch over the years. Serita & Ranita stepped in and decided to make a cheesecake and have a BBQ. That’s the bonus of having daughters who like to cook and also daughters friends namely Sally who makes delicous kababs effortlessly. All I did was marinade the meat. The guests were invited and the menu planned and hey presto, we had an outdoor banquet fit for a king.
1. BBQ Chicken
2. BBQ Fish
3. Beef Kebabs

1 kg mince; salt and pepper to taste; 3 onions minced fine; 3 green chillies minced fine; 1tbsp ginger garlic paste; small bunch of parsley chopped fine; 1 tbsp. cooking oil. Mix all ingredients together.
12 wooden skewers or chop sticks. Soak the skewers in water the previous night to prevent them catching fire when placed on the grill.
Divide the mince into portions and press around skewers carefully. Grill 5 minutes on coals until ready to eat. Can baste with oil if required. Serve hot with wedges of lime. Makes a great starter and usually eaten in a jiffy.
