Paneer Tikka is a popular appetizer in Indian restaurant but you can use Tofu too . Use extra firm tofu. I had firm tofu and so you can see how it disintegrated.
Basically vegetables are marinated in yogurt sauce. We add some roasted chickpea flour but if you use greek yogurt it’s thick enough . Or you can use any flour you generally use to thicken your soup or sauce here.
Now add spices like red pepper, turmeric , cumin powder etc . Your choice, likes snd creativity into plain yogurt. If you have kasoori methi and mustard oil add that for Indian flavor. Or little olive is good too. We are flexible , right ?
Marinate vegetables like colored pepper , tofu, onion , mushrooms.
Put it on skewers and bake in oven for 30 -40 minutes turning them around few times in between . You can pour little butter when you turn it around .
This is no way authentic tikka recipe that you find in restaurants but at home for fun, healthy meal.
With little salad on side and cilantro chutney makes a good meal.
Appetizer for dinner . Why not ? Our minds are so conditioned that we get stuck on right and wrong and forget to be just happy.
It’s easy to add some small good things in meal. Like little salad on the side with just salt and lemon juice. Add little chopped raw garlic or have cilantro chutney with garlic in it on the side . Garlic is immunity booster . Doesn’t hurt to have little.
Sprinkle some flax meal on your meal. Everyone now a days can use some help with constipation.
When you start making small changes , things build up slowly . Like spending 5 minutes doing something you enjoy other than TV of course . May be just 1 sun salutation before meal. Or play a music instrument or paint or draw for few minutes whatever you like. 5 minutes of meditation or observe your breath for 5 minutes. There’s so much and so many things you can do in 5 minutes.
