kenyan-mutton-kebabs

Kenyan Mutton Kebabs- Restaurant Style

There’s something special about Kenyan Mutton Kebabs and it has to do with the egg coating. These are a street food staple all across East Africa and a great snack for parties. I have used minced mutton for this recipe but feel free to use any other types of minced meat. I also used curry powder to keep the flavours simple but you can add any other herbs and spices that you may like.
