  • Preheat oven to 350°C. Prepare a half sheet baking pan by spraying with oil or laying a parchment paper.
  • To form kebabs, take approximately 2 tablespoons of kebab mixture and try to form an oblong shape. Place each kebab on the prepared half sheet baking pan. Brush oil onto each kebab sparingly.
  • Place on middle rack for 35 to 40 minutes. Kebabs will turn light brown to amber. Remove from the oven, put aside.

For the tomato base:

  • Simmer water in a large pot. Add tomatoes, garlic, red chili powder, salt, pepper flakes, cover and let it simmer on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a frying pan, when the oil is hot add the cumin and turn off the heat. Remove the lid from tomato base, pour the oil with cumin into the pot and put the lid back immediately, it may splatter so be careful.
  • Arrange the kebabs in a shallow oven proof dish, so you may heat the kebabs in the oven later if needed, pour the tomato sauce on top of the kebabs. Garnish with fresh coriander, and see with warm nans or boiled rice with raita.
