  • Cut veal and pork into 1-inch cubes and place cubes in a large bowl.
  • Chop garlic.
  • In a small bowl, mix garlic, water, wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour over meat cubes and stir.
  • Marinate meat cubes for at least 3 hours, or overnight, to allow flavours to blend.
  • Leaving about 2 inches at the bottom of each skewer, arrange pork and veal cubes alternately on wooden skewers.
  • Squeeze cubes together.
  • Continue to add meat until all the meat is used. You should fill 12 skewers.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, curry powder, salt, and pepper.
  • In a second shallow bowl, beat eggs.
  • Dip skewered meat cubes in breadcrumbs.
  • Coat with egg, then dip in crumbs again.
  • Gently squeeze sticks with hands to make breadcrumbs flat and sticks more rounded.
  • In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil.
  • Fry skewers of meat cubes, a few at a time, until meat is lightly browned.
  • Combine onions and butter and spread in a large shallow baking dish.
  • Place meat sticks on top of onions.
  • Bake in a 275 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink.
