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.
Have you ever had Roasted Cauliflower ? Other day I had roasted cauliflower burrito but it just was full of only roasted cauliflower. I like to have it as side dish and eat something fun with it. It’s so easy to make and now during fall , you will find good cauliflower in store everywhere.
I had with Upma on the side . Cauliflower will help eat other things less.
