When it comes to simplicity and amazing flavor, these just might be my favorite appetizer on the planet! The aromatic flavors of lemongrass, garlic and cilantro cook up in a sizzling symphony and the pomegranate dipping sauce lends a sweet-spicy note.

Combine lamb or chicken, pistachios, garlic, mint, cilantro, sugar, tamarai, lemongrass, pepper and salt in a bowl.

Roll the mixture into balls about the size of a Ping-Pong ball. Flatten out each ball slightly and wrap it around a small bamboo fork or a short metal or wooden skewer. (Soak any wooden skewers in water for a couple of hours before wrapping with the mixture.)

Place chili sauce and pomegranate juice in a small pot and boil for 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly reduced.

Preheat a gas or charcoal grill and grill the skewers, turning frequently, until the meat is done through (165° F internal temperature taken with an instant-read thermometer).

Serve with chili-pomegranate dipping sauce.
