Tofu tikka masala/grilled tofu

After a long time I made grilled tofu with some veggies. For vegetarian this is one of the high protein rich food.


450 gms extra firm tofu
1 yellow or green or red bell pepper
1 onion
1 tsp corn starch for extra crunchiness

For marination:-

Thick yogurt 1/4 cup
1 tsp red chilly powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tandori masala (optional)
1 tsp crushed kasoori methi/dry fenugreek leaves
1 tsp oil
1 tsp ginger garlic paste


Wrap tofu in a kitchen towel/paper towel and keep it aside for 30 mins and remove excess water from tofu. Cut tofu into thick cubes (bite size cubes). Dice the onions and bell pepper ( I have used yellow bell pepper in my recipe).  Mix all the ingredients and marinate diced tofu, onion and bell pepper together and let it rest for at least 30-40 mins. Till your marinated tofu is resting soak 6-7 wooden skewers in water for at least 20 mins (this way it will not burn on high heat when you grill).

Pre heat oven for 400 degree F. After 30 mins arrange tofu, onion and bell pepper on a wooden skewer-alternating between them, sprinkle little corn starch on top of the veggies and tofu. Once the oven is preheated bake/grill for 45 mins or until its nice and crispy (make sure to turn it couple of times so that it bakes evenly on all sides). If you don't have oven you can also open grill your tofu.

Enjoy your spicy appetizer!!
