To begin, place the Cardamoms, Cinnamon, Coriander and Cumin into a spice grinder or pestle and mortar and grind to a fine powder
Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well to make a fragrant marinade
Stir the meat into the marinade, coating each chunk evenly.
Transfer to the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight
Thread the marinated meat onto the metal skewers, placing diced Pepper between them.
Reserve any remaining marinade for basting
Preheat an oven to 180°C
Place the kebabs on an oven tray, cover with foil and cook in the oven for 20 minutes
Remove the foil, turn the kebabs over and coat with the remaining marinade
