Kabab Erbil-Kabob. كباب أربيل

1 pound ground chuck
1 pound ground lamb
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons flour

Mix all the above in a bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Take a handful of meat and insert the skewer in the meat. Shape the meat around the skewers. Wet your hands with cold water while working with the meat.
Grill on the charcoal grill for five minutes on each side. When done, remove them from the grill and sprinkle summac over the kabab. Serve with tannour bread or nan bread.
You can grill tomatoes, onions and other vegetables too.
Serve kabab with pickles, fresh basil, fresh parsley and sliced tomatoes.
If you are not using a charcoal grill, place the kabobs on a tray and put in the oven under the broiler for 5 minutes on each side.
