Goat Meat Kyinkyinga Kebabs

1 pound goat meat cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons cooking oil
24 wooden skewers

Ghanaian Tankora Spice Mix

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

Add all spices to a coffee grinder and grind carefully taking care not to over process the mixture or it will turn into peanut butter. The texture should resemble fine breadcrumbs. This spice mixture is called Ghanaian tankora and is the spice mix of choice for kyinkyinga kebabs.

Soak the skewers in water for 20 minutes; you will use two skewers per kebab. Place goat meat in a large bowl and mix with cooking oil making sure the meat is coated well. Add meat to skewers about 4-6 pieces per stick taking care the meat is not touching so they cook evenly then sprinkle with homemade tankora spice mix. 

Place kebobs directly 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.
