Ingredients:  
2 kg lamb cut into 2" cubes (shoulder or leg)
4 bay leaves ripped in half
4 medium onions sliced
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper to taste
2 tbs oil
1- cups of water
hot paprika powder optional

Directions:
Directions:
1. In a large bowl, combine the lamb, sliced onions, bay leaves, salt, oil and water. Using your hands, mix them all together set aside in the fridge to marinate overnight. If in a hurry then for minimum 4 hours.
2. Thread the meat pieces onto metal skewers, about 6 per skewer, with any fat positioned towards the outside of the skewer.
3. Prepare the mangal. Place charcoals in the mangal, and light and allow to burn for about 30 minutes, or until the charcoal is all white. You mangal is ready.
4. Place the skewers on the mangal and cook until the meat is cooked. The length of time is determined by the heat and height from the charcoal. Don't burn your meat! Keep turning the shashlik as it cooks, so it doesn't burn. I like to add hot paprika spice directly on the skewer for a spicy kick.

Personal Notes:
When preparing Shashlik one must be ecstatic. If the preparer of Shashlik is tense, the dish will come out painfully burnt. Take care to chop the lamb meat without bursting into a violent waterfall. To keep from crying, don't think of the lamb being being alive and peaceful while chopping it. The moment you start grilling the marinated meat, the smell will take you back to that one summer day when you didn't have to be the one making the dish. The first bite of the shashlik will make you feel like you're in heaven. A person eating the dish is a Christmas tree lighting up.
