comment Is it advisable to use the Extra Virgin Olive oil for Indian cooking, and baking?
That is a waste of very expensive olive oil. When heated. Olive oil loses a lot of its beautiful flavour. Plus the spices in Indian cooking kill the olive oil flavour. That is why parathas are cooked in butter and ghee, these oils release flavour when heated.

comment Can I swap sabji Masala for Tandoori Masala in this recipe?
You need to compare the ingredients between sabji masala and tandoori masala. I won't recommend substituting. Tandoori masala will have quit a bit of ginger and garlic to combat the game-y taste of meat. Sabji masala is more herbs,less in ginger and garlic .

comment Is wood a good alternative to charcoal for bbq fuel?
@Jefromi....where do you buy oak? In Toronto, Canada, they only sell birch in campgrounds,parks and stores. I think oak is too precious to be burned down. It is used in furniture.

Birch has flame initially, but after that, it will burn to white hot coals and then there will be no flame ,right?
