Cooks Tips

- If you do not have coriander seeds or whole peppercorns, substitute 2 teaspoons ground coriander and ¼-½ teaspoons ground pepper. - If you do not have fresh peaches, substitute a 425 gram tin of peaches, but be sure they're well drained. - Soak the wooden skewers in cold water for 30-60 minutes before using. This helps to prevent them from burning when grilling. - Use a coffee/spice mill to grind whole spices. If you do not have one, place the whole spices on a wooden chopping board. Using the heel of a saucepan, push the saucepan firmly over the whole spices in a sliding motion. This crushes them easily.
