Boti Kabab

1 kg mutton-cut into pieces
1 cup yoghurt
salt to taste
1/4 cup roasted gram-powdered
onion slices-to garnish
lemon wedges-to garnish

Grind to a paste
1/4 cup raw papaya-chopped
1 tbsp peeled garlic
1 tbsp roughly chopped ginger

Pierce the pieces of meat with a fork or skewer.
Mix in all the ingredients except the roasted gram and marinate for 6 hours or even better, overnight.

Mix in the powdered gram and skewer the meat pieces.
Bake in a pre-heated oven over a drip-tray, for 15-20 minutes.
Then lower the temperature and bake for another 10 minutes or till tender.
Alternatively, the pieces can be grilled on a barbecue.
This gives it a better flavor.

Serve garnished with the onions and the lemon wedges.
A green chutney is a good accompaniment.

* For better results marinate and keep overnight in a refrigerator
