  • 2 tablespoons oil for cooking

For Chutney:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 dry Shata pepper, finely chopped (Shatta is a middle eastern hot pepper sauce - you could substitute with the hot sauce of your choice, or red pepper flakes, to taste)
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (4 tablespoons)
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 3 mangos, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 pound of dates, thinly sliced

For Mini Kebabs

  • 2 pounds mixed ground meat; composed of 2/3 lamb and 1/3 beef

  • On a medium saucepan, place the brown sugar and the Shatta pepper and heat until the sugar begins to brown on the sides. Add the vinegar, fruit and black pepper and simmer for half an hour, until you get a thick texture chutney. Season with salt and pepper. Cool and store in the refrigerator.
Mini kebabs:

    served these on rosh hashana—for the seder–i used this as the “rosh” or head—it was a big hit–i made 3 kilo and they were devoured and i had to promise to make them again–soon–like maybe for sukkot

  2. I love this recipe! And the cinnamon sticks are a stroke of genius!

  3. The lamb kebabs look and sound amazing I can’t wait to try them for my family Shabbat, yes!
