Cook’s Notes
Kebabs come in many forms in India – some on a skewer, some more like small hamburger patties.

Garam masala is one of the spice mixes that is commonly used in Indian cooking. It’s a finishing spice that’s always added at the end of a recipe. You can find it on line:

Love this recipe. I caught it on CREATE TV today 6/3/2012. Where can we find the recipe for the suggested accompaniments?

Can you give me more details about the accompaniments? I think this must have been from season one of my show and I don’t remember all the side dishes.
