    Hello Yahya
    QQ – Was the picture at the end with the kebabs on the platter the amount you obtained from 1kg of mince. I’m just trying to figure out how much I’d need for the amount of people who’ll be at mine.
    Would you also be able to recommend a good Garlic sauce?

    1. A kg will cook around 8 to 10 kebabs (depending on the size). Homemade Garlic sauce is the best and so easy too.
