The mshakiki are meat skewers, similar in presentation to the traditional roasts of central Italy.
They can be beef, chicken or kid and ideal, before preparation, is the maturation of the meat in the fridge and marinating with oil, salt, pepper and lemon. 
They are usually spiced with chili, ginger, masala or other local spices.

Ingredients for 4 people: 
1kg of meat, including beef, chicken and kid.
Chili powder
Ginger (or masala powder)
Garlic 
One teaspoon of tomato paste
Salt and pepper
Oil enough

Preparation: Cut the meat into cubes not so big and marinate them with the available ingredients, crushing the garlic without chopping it. Leave everything for at least two hours in the fridge.
Grill with charcoal, sprinkling with sweet paprika or masala.
