Sanjeev Kapoor is sort of the Julia Child of Indian cooking. His recipes are usually excellent and even his Khazana Brand is not bad in a pinch, but I prefer Parampara Brand as they are fresh pastes no msg or preservatives and excellent when you haven't the time to make proper masalas.

Can i warm up my sizzler plate in the oven, i live in North America, i do love to eat sizzlers got the plate from India during my last visit but am scared if the sizzler will turn on my smoke alarms.

Open flame grilling would be the quickest way to heat sizzler plates (cast iron variety), I believe.
