  1. Soak 8-10 wooden skewers in a large pan of water for at least 30 minutes before grilling.

  2. Preheat grill to 400℉.

  3. In a food processor, chop the onion, garlic, parsley, and mint. Add the beef, bread (be sure to squeeze out the water completely before adding), zest, and the spices. Run the processor until all is well combined forming a pasty meat mixture. If you don’t have a food processor, you can mix ingredients in a large bowl by hand.

  4. Remove the beef mixture from the food processor and place in a large bowl. Using a spatula, gently fold in yogurt and oil. 

  5. In 8-10 equal portions, mold the beef lengthwise on a wooden skewer. Repeat the process for remaining skewers.

  6. Grill over direct heat 3-4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 160℉.

  7. Serve with basmati rice and side salad.
