  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, ginger, and 2 teaspoons salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until scallions are tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in ground spices, and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in turmeric. Transfer scallion mixture to a large bowl, and let cool, about 20 minutes.

  • Add beef, cilantro, and mint to scallion mixture, and gently mix. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Divide meat mixture into 16 pieces, then form each piece into a log, 1 1/2 inches thick. Slide a skewer lengthwise through center of each log. Place a lemon wedge on end of each skewer. Place skewers on a baking sheet, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Season kebabs with salt and pepper. Arrange on grill, and cook, undisturbed, for 3 minutes. Carefully turn skewers a third of the way, and cook for 2 minutes. Turn skewers a third of the way again, and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer skewers to a plate, garnish with cilantro, and serve immediately.
