Tandoori vegetables

Are you hungry for your veggies yet? These tandoori vegetables are so good!

You’ve got to eat your veggies! They’re good for you.

This is a tasty way of getting your 5 a day. Tandoori vegetables can be served as a side dish or you could add the vegetables to any of the restaurant style curries on my blog to make a vegetarian version of the curry.

The gram flour adds both flavour and a delicious appearance to the tandoori vegetables. It makes the marinade thicker which looks great when grilled.

You could also place these tandoori vegetables on a lightly oiled baking tray and cook them in a hot oven until lightly charred and cooked through. Personally though, I enjoy the smoky flavour and char that comes from cooking them over hot coals on skewers.

Which Vegetable?

You can use any vegetables you like for this tandoori vegetable recipe. If using harder vegetable such as carrots or potatoes, you might want to simmer then until fork tender before adding them to the marinade.

Making Tandoori vegetables

Par-boil for a couple of minutes. Not too soft now!
