  • We used 7 small wood skewers,but if you have the original large flat kebab skewers, I would expect that there are enough stuffing for 3 spears
  • I recommend that you double up this portion. Just like köfte, you will always eat more than what you expect (and the recipe is "only" for 3 people).
  • I love to eat a good plentiful flatbread, bulgur and a good bean salad (piyaz) for these spears. It can be recommendedAdana kebabAdana kebabAdana kebabAdana kebabAdana kebabAdana kebab
