Pls note:
These kebabs can also be baked as well as grilled. you can bake kababs at 180 degrees C which is moderate oven temperature. brush some oil on the kebabs. just place the kebabs on a tray or wired rack and bake for 20-25 mins or till the kebabs get browned from the top. you can change the sides after 10-15 minutes of baking
