These Tofu Tikkas are a healthier alternative to the traditional Indian Paneer Tikka. They are not only just healthy and easy to make but the bomb of flavors will leave you wanting more. It’s as simple as preparing the marinating the tofu and veggies and grilling them. Gluten Free, can be made vegan too.
So the weather is finally getting warmer now. Infact we have been averaging about 85 degrees F this week. So everytime I am driving back home and parking the car in the garage, I can tell people in my neighborhood are grilling from the smell from their BBQ’s. So the other night I finally made some Tofu Tikka. I haven’t come across a single person who has tried either the Tikkas on skewers or curry and hasn’t fallen in love with them. No wonders it is such a popular dish around the globe. What I love about Tikka is the fresh, tender, moist & spiced chunks of Indian Cottage Cheese and veggies marinated and then grilled. These can be enjoyed as an appetizer but Dr.Mystery and I like to have it for dinner sometimes.
The marinade is everything in this dish. If you can get the marinade right, your good. What’s great about this gourmet dish is that it is super easy to make. It’s ‘literally just tossing a few ingredients together’ my favorite line isn’t it? You know by know that I like to keep my cooking simple and easy. The marinade mixture is a bomb of flavors. Once the marinade is ready, you can toss in veggies, tofu, paneer (indian cottage cheese) or meat. As I write this post, my mouth is still watering and I am wondering in the back of my mind if I can quickly make some Paneer or have some Tofu for some Tikka tonight.
I like to marinate my veggies and protein in two different dishes. That ways I make sure I don’t break the tender pieces of Paneer or Tofu and they are evenly coated. Grilling a combination of veggies and protein using this marinade is so healthy and flavorful.
These are great when served with our Green Chutney. These will leave you wanting more.
