Indian spices liven up this homemade barbecue sauce: this tangy Indian sauce is made with olive oil, real ketchup, herbs, and spices, and is good for grilling, roasting, or frying. Keep the other condiments mixing to help maintain its tangy consistency, as it then keeps a red-hot, savory aroma with the espresso, sugar, and Coke content.
