Being of Armenian origin myself, I have grown up with this food for years and would like to share it with those who are not familiar with Armenian cuisine.

  3. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or over night if you are able to.
  4. Thread onto skewers and place on the grill, if using an open grill, ensure to constantly turn the skewer to reduce charring on the meat.
