Prudy said...

Again, this is exactly why I love to come here. This is exactly the kind of food that I love. I have everything I need to make the kebabs except rape seed oil. Can I sub it for something else?

Jeena said...

Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments I appreciate the feedback. :-)

Prudy, I have a virgin rapeseed oil which is cold pressed, nutty in taste and used for drizzling salads or hummus etc.

The rapeseed oil I use for my chicken kebabs is tastless and just like vegetable oil so you can use any sunflower oil or veggie oil. :-) I would love to hear how it goes.
