Tips: Get frozen French fries and bake them in the oven. They are quick & easy to use. They taste great. Or we like the fries from Luna grill! We used Gopi paneer from the Indian grocery store.Char the cabbage leaves till they turn brown.Use garlic generously. It enhances the flavor of the sizzler.
