Vegetable Skewers!

We had been camping to Del Valle Regional Park. It was fun. We didn't do much other than cook cook and cook. We made Indian style Grilled Corn, Vegetable burgers and of course Vegetable Skewers. It was really good. You can make this in a gas grill or an oven but nothing like it grilled on coal.

Paneer - Cubed into 1" pieces
Mushrooms - few button mushrooms or big ones cut into quarters
Peppers - Red , yellow and green, cut into cubes
Onion - cut into cubes
Cherry tomatoes - a few or cut up a regular tomato into pieces
Pineapple - cubed, I used Dole canned pineapple
Zucchini - cubed
Olive oil - 1 tbs
Salt and pepper to taste
Juice of one lemon for garnishing.

For Marinating:
Fresh yogurt or curd - 1 cup
Red Chilly powder - 2 tsp
Tandoori masala - 2 Tbs
Ginger-garlic paste - 2 tsp
Chaat masala - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Mix all the above ingredients for marination and add cubed paneer and mushrooms. Marinate this in the refrigerator atleast for 20 mins. Leaving it overnight is good.
Take 1 tbs of olive oil or any other cooking oil in a bowl and mix in the rest of the cut vegetables along with salt and pepper.
If using bamboo skewers, you will have to soak them in water for 1/2 an hour to prevent burning of the sticks on the grill.
Skewer the vegetables in the order of your choice and grill it for 5 to 10 minutes till done.
Enjoy with a drizzle of lemon juice.
