Mishkaki is a famous East African bbq meat delicacy. Cubes of steak are marinated and then skewered and grilled until tender, the result is succulent, moist and delicious barbecued meat morsels. It is somewhat similar to the desi beef boti.

1 kg
beef steak, cubed
(use a good cut like rump steak)
1 tbsp.
ginger paste
1 tbsp.
garlic paste
2-3 tbsp
grated raw papaya
(acts as a tenderizer)
1-2 tsp.
1 tsp.
red chilli powder
1 tsp.
turmeric powder
2 tbsp.
1 tbsp.
tomato paste/puree
1 tbsp.
tamarind paste or lemon juice
1 tbsp.
curry powder or tandoori powder

Mix all the ingredients well, and then marinate the beef in the marinade preferably overnight for the meat to tenderize. 

Skewer the meat, and cook over a hot charcoal grill or under an oven broiler until tender. You can brush a bit of oil during the cooking process so that the meat doesn't dry out. Keep turning the skewers as you grill to ensure the meat is cooked evenly. Be careful not to overcook as this will dry and toughen the meat.

Serve with fried and a salad.



may we replace papaya with something else..? not available... and may we do the same with mutton n chicken....???

You can use meat tenderiser in place of the papaya paste. If you are using chicken no need to use tenderiser.

Assalaam aleykum. Hope you all are well. If using meat tenderizer, do I have to use the same qty as raw papaya?

W/Salaam, meat tenderiser is very strong, just 1 tsp should be enough in place of the raw papaya.
