Veggie Kebabs

We had a birthday party combined with BBQ over the weekend. I made the veggie kebabs for BBQ. Here is the recipe for the same.



Marination:

1 cup of yogurt
1tbsp of olive oil
3tbsp of chat masala
2tbsp of garam masala( You can use tandoori masal for color. I haven't used )
5 tbsp red chili powder (you can adjust as per your spice. Spice lovers should add more spice. Marination reduces the spice)
salt to taste
Mint/Pudina and cilantro leaves paste (I used 10 -15 mint leaves)
1tbsp lemon juice


Vegetables:

1 lb Paneer
2 bell peppers
1 Zucchini
1 Onions
1 Egg plant

Preparation:

Mix all the marination ingredients.
Cut the vegetables in cubes(big pieces. If you cut too thin then vegetables will break while threading to skewers).
Put all the vegetables in the marination mixture and mix it well.
Cover and keep it in fridge overnight.
Thread the vegetables in the order of which you like to wooden skewers(You can use metal skewers too) and grill them.




Grilling:



Note: Wet the wooden skewers before threading. This helps skewers not to burn .

I used the charcoal grill .

Season with salt and pepper powder. I had these kebabs with Chili sauce.
