  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

The Toum (garlic sauce)

  • 1 cup garlic cloves peeled and trimmed
  • 2 tsp salt the coarser the better
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1.5 cups vegetable oil or any neutral oil

Instructions

The Kabab

  • in a food processor combine everything except the chicken and yogurt and process until a paste
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine the paste and the yogurt, press in the chicken to submerge, cover and allow to marinade at least 1 hour, up to 24
  • Place the chicken pieces on skewers and grill at medium-high 1-2 minutes per side

The Toum

  • Combine the salt and garlic in a food processor and process til it starts to get smooth. While the processor runs, add the oil and lemon juice slowly, alternating 1 tbsp lemon juice then 1/2 cup oil. Repeat until out of both and the sauce is smooth.
