1 pound lamb meat cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 bouillon cube crushed
¼ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon cloves
¼ teaspoon ground red pepper

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped into 2-inch pieces
1 white onion, chopped into 1-inch pieces
8 large fresh brown mushrooms
¼ teaspoon salt
24 wooden skewers
Soak the skewers in water for 20 minutes; you will use two skewers per kebab.
In a large bowl, combine spices, and then stir in the lamb cubes. Mix well so the spices coat the lamb evenly. Thread the skewers with lamb, pumpkin, pepper, onion, and mushrooms.
Place on a hot grill, close lid and cook 5 minutes per side or until meat is done all the way through to the center. Transfer skewers to a plate, let rest 2 minutes and serve.
