Vegan Skewers/ Vegan Paneer Tikka/Tofu Tikka

I made these vegan skewers as a starter for some friends and they were so delicious. I had them with home made mint sauce. This recipe is perfect for vegans who want to make something quick and is full of taste. You can make them in oven, on a barbecue grill or on bon-fire.

Typically it is made with Paneer which is a type of cheese, but I replaced it with Tofu to make it vegan, and they were so good!! Do give it a try, and give me the feedback.

Ingredients (3 portions):

1. 250 gm tofu chopped in medium sized cubes

2. 8 skewer sticks

3. 1 onion chopped in big pieces

4. 2 tablespoon soy yoghurt

5. One teaspoon cumin powder

6. One teaspoon coriander powder

7. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

8. Salt as per taste

9. Half teaspoon turmeric powder

10. Half teaspoon chilly powder (skip it if you don't like spicy)

11. Half teaspoon black pepper

Method (don't forget to read tips and tricks under before you start cooking):

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 degree Celsius (if making it in oven).

  • In a big bowl, mix yoghurt and flour well with all the spices and make a smooth batter

  • Now, add chopped tofu and onions in the batter and coat them well with the batter and leave them in the batter for 2-3 mins.

  • Now, place them on skewer sticks with 3-4 tofu pieces and 1-2 pieces of onion in between them as shown in the picture above.

  • Bake them in the oven at 200 degree Celsius for about 15-20 mins, until the tofu edges have turned brown (not black) and have become crispy from outside.

  • Take them out, eat them warm together with some mint sauce dip. Recipe for mint sauce will be published in a separate post.

Tips and tricks:

  • While placing the tofu and onion on skewer sticks, be careful that the stick pierces through the centre, otherwise they might fall from the sticks.

  • Don't bake them longer than required, have a check at them (if baking) at regular intervals.

  • If barbecuing or using bon fire, remember to flip the sides when one side is done.
