So whenever it rains or during winters me and my family would sit near the Sigri (Bonfire) and grill the vegetables from our farm. I feel you can marinate anything, grill it and enjoy the smoky flavours of it. So this time i decided to grill broccoli, corn, mushrooms, paneer, bell peppers, onions and capsicum and grill it in a single skewer so everyone can have all the varieties of vegetables. It looks beautiful and tastes damn good.
INGREDIENTS- For 6-7 people
For the marination-
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Cumin powder (Jeera powder) - 1 tsp
Chaat masala - 2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp (Optional)
Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Kasuri Methi - 1 tsp
Ajwain seeds - 1 tsp
Yogurt (Curd) - 1/2 cup
Besan - 1/4 cup
For the vegetables-
Broccoli florets - 1 cup
Onions - 2 big
Bell peppers - 1 red and 1 yellow
Capsicum - 1 big
Corn ( boiled) - 2 Cobs
Mushrooms - 1/2 cup
Paneer - 200 gms
This is basic marinade for all grilled tikkas or vegetables.
After marinating the vegetables let it rest in the fridge for two hours. Resting infuses more flavours in it. The vegetables absorb all the marinade.
You can choose any type of vegetable like cauliflowers, zucchini, beetroots, sweet potato, potatoes and pineapples. This recipe works for everything.
Be careful while putting veggies on to the skewers so you dont get any cuts.
You can use tandoor, oven-bake them, use a frying pan and saute them or directly use a stove.
To prepare the marinade mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Add yogurt and all the veggies into it. Mix it really well such that all the veggies and covered with your marinade.
Let it rest in the fridge for 1-2 hours. After that take them out and place it in skewers. Apply little oil or butter on them.
Now place it on the barbecue and cook it equally from all sides by continuously turning it.
Now take it out using a fork or tongs and serve it with chaat masala sprinkled on top and coriander chutney.
This is an extremely easy recipe with all ingredients from home. It tastes heavenly when its raining or winter days.
