One query. In my family, nobody likes bitter taste and hence asking you the following -- Because of cocoa powder, whether there is a possibility of developing bitter taste or not? Whether we need to add sugar or not? If sugar is required, then how much?

Hosted a terrace barbeque party for my son and his friends. As usual Tarla Dalal recipes were a great help and also boost my cooking skills. These Mexican Kebabs were a super hit. The flavour of the marinade was superb.I always associated cocoa powder with sweet chocolaty dishes, but here it gave a nice rich colour and added to the flavour of the marinade. The grilled paneer was just perfect to warm up everyone''s taste buds. I used full fat paneer and since I have kebab baskets for grilling the fear of paneer falling off was not there. I served the Mexican Kebabs with .
