Recipe Ingredient

  • 150 g (1 ½ lb) rump steak
  • 2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground cummin
  • 2 teaspoons ground fennel
  • finely grated rind of half lemon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons thick coconut milk


  1. Cut beef into small cubes, about 2 cm (¾ inch) thick each way. Trim off excess fat, leaving a thin layer of fat on some of the cubes.
  2. Cut the trimmed off fat into thin squares.Combine turmeric, cummin, fennel, lemon rind, salt, sugar and coconut milk in a bowl and stir to dissolve sugar. Add beef and mix well, cover and leave to marinate for 1 hour or longer. The longer it is left, the more the flavours will penetrate the meat.
  3. Thread on bamboo skewers that have been soaked in cold water for a few hours, putting about 5 pieces on the end of each skewer and leaving at least half the skewer uncovered. Use the squares of fat where necessary, for they keep the meat tender.
  4. Grill over hot coals or under a preheated griller until beef is well done and crisp and brown on all sides.
