Vegetable Tikka

I recently saw a post on vegetable tikka in a food blog that I follow, though not WFPB. And had an irresistible urge to have it. So, I asked Hari if he could prepare a WFPB version of it. He told me that he did not have the proper skewers to prepare it – but promised to improvise. I am not usually fond of tikkas as these are normally served at cocktail parties. And, invariably, only paneer (cottage cheese) tikkas are on offer. But I tasted the ones prepared by Hari and immediately fell in love. He explained that the trick lies in preparing the marinade. And he had done a wonderful job of it, bless him. And converted me to an undying fan of this delicious dish.
