Now add minced meat.

soaked, add some breadcrumbs.
Form the meatballs, lengthened in the way of kebabs.
Now place a pan on a medium heat cooker and add seed oil.
Once the oil is hot, add the kebabs.
Cover the kebabs and leave to cook for about five minutes, but check every now and then.
Once cooked on one side, turn them into the pan and cover, cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes.
