Wonderfully flavored kebabs! Loved all the ingredients in the marinade -- they grilled up perfectly. Served them with some sauteed cherry tomatoes and a nice side salad. Will definitely grill these up again - so easy! Made for the 1-2-3 Tag, June, 2012.

I feel as tho I'm reviewing this recipe for a 2nd time. I made Noo's Recipe #432647 on a few previous occasions, and this is basically the same recipe without the sauce. We loved it this way as much as the other. (Actually, I prefer it this way and hubby prefers the sauce). The nice thing about this is that you can make both variations at the same time! The only thing I had to change was that I was out of fresh ginger and used 1/8 tsp of ground ginger. Definitely a difference, fresh is always better. But either way, we enjoyed this very much. Thanks for posting.

Very good and an easy dinner with a tossed salad. I skipped teh garam masala but these had tons of flavor even without it. Thanks for sharing!
