Indian Vegetarian BBQ

4 Tbsp thick yogurt
2 Tbsp chick pea flour / plain flour
1 Tbsp tomato puree
1/4 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
Salt to taste
12 1 inch square pieces of paneer (cottage cheese)
1 medium sized green capsicum - cut into
12 small button mushrooms
6 Skewers

1) Mix all of the above in a big bowl (except paneer, green capsicum, button mushrooms and skewers) to make the marinade.
2)  Cut the capsicum into 1 inch squares as well. Remove the stem of the button mushrooms.
3) Toss in the paneer, capsicum, mushrooms - mix well. Cover with a plastic cling wrap and let it marinade overnight.
4) Divide the paneer, mushrooms and capsicum into 6 equal parts which goes into the 6 skewers.
5) Place the skewers on the BBQ, keep turning until all sides are done.

Tip: If using bamboo skewers soak in water for 1 hour - so that the skewers dont catch on fire
Tip: Note the marinade needs to be on the saltier side
Tip: Get creative! Go crazy with the veggies :) Zucchini, squash, asparagus, eggplant, pineapple :)
