These stuffed potato skewers are great as a side dish or main
Indian cuisine offers some of the most amazing vegetarian dishes on the planet and these stuffed tandoori potato skewers are no exception.
For the best and most eye-catching presentation, use a large variety of colourful vegetables in your stuffing. I have suggested some below but of course you could use your seasonal veggies of choice.
The finished dish is delicious and the perfect way to start a meal though you could also serve these skewered potatoes as a vegetarian main.
You might want to prepare these skewered potatoes indoors and then them all outside to finish but the whole recipe can be done on the barbecue.
Looking at it, you’ve probably realised that these potato skewers take a bit of work to make.
That said, they are easy to put together so I hope you give them a try.
Once you’ve made them, you can also choose another filling to go in them. Experiment and have fun with it.
If it is more convenient for you, all of the prep work can be done a day in advance.
Just place the stuffed potatoes covered with cling film in the fridge.
You can even marinate them overnight.

THE TANDOORI MARINADE INGREDIENTS
Any food quality tandoori marinade will do for this recipe. Following is what I whisked together in the bowl above. You could leave out the yoghurt if you like but it does add a little flavour and also acts as a protective coating while cooking.
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp tandoori masala
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp amchoor (dried mango powder)
1 tbsp Kashmiri chilli powder (more or less to taste or mild paprika)
1 tbsp garlic and ginger paste
1 tbsp green chilli paste
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
4 tbsp rapeseed (canola) oil
Approx 3 tbsp water
200g Greek yoghurt, whisked (optional)

These potato skewers were cooked on a Kadai Fire Bowl using Big K Charcoal. I received both free of charge to use in my recipes and I highly recommend both products.
