This is a Cape Malay recipe, and traditionally it is made with lamb. Since lamb isn't readily available here, I've only used beef. According to this recipe, usually only meat is threaded onto the skewers. However, I do like to add some cubed onions to intersperse with the meat. They are served with a slightly sweet sauce made from the marinade and flavored long grain rice. Prep and cooking time do not include the marinating time!! From Classic International Recipes.
