Meat on a stick with tzatziki

I only need one word, OK two words combined into one, to describe tonight's dinner: YUMMILICIOUS! It was truly scrumptious, and I want you all to make it yourselves so that you too can enjoy this food, food fit for kings and queens all over the world! Try it, I am sure you'll love it! And if you don't like it, there must be something wrong with you!

Meat on a stick
Serves 2

400 g ground beef
1 clove garlic, grated
1 small onion, grated
1 tsp jeera (cumin) powder
1 tsp dhania (coriander) powder
1 pinch salt
½ pinch red chili powder

Heat oven to 220 C.

1. Put 12 wooden skewers in water to soak, this will prevent the skewers from catching fire while cooking, while you prepare the meat. You will most likely end up using about 10.

2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

3. Take a small handful of the meat mix in your hands and make a sausage shape. Thread onto a soaked wooden skewer. Do this with the rest of the meat mix until you have used up all the meat.

4. Use an oven dish slightly narrower than the skewers are long. Place the meat sticks on top of the dish so that they hang free and do not touch the bottom of the dish. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, check on them from time to time, as sometimes it takes shorter/longer time.
You can also BBQ the meat outside, or in a griddle pan on the stove.

Serves 2

2 dl Greek yogurt, sour cream, or crême fraiche
5 cm cucumber, grated
1 clove garlic, grated
salt and pepper

Put the yogurt in a bowl. Grate the cucumber and place the gratings in a kitchen towel. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Mix the cucumber and garlic into the yogurt, season with salt and pepper.
