Corn and Tofu Kebab Recipe

Hello everyone, how is your week going? Mine is okay not too good, not to bad. Good because, after a long gloomy week, sun finally decides to make an appearance. The sun is shining bright and the temperatures are rising..yay !! Bad because, I am all sniffy, sneezy, curled up in bed with a box full of tissues, some throat lozenges and my laptop – I have flu and that means plenty of rest 🙁 and soups. 🙂

So, today’s day is all about rest and blogging in bed! The recipe that I am blogging today is easy, healthy and delicious – corn and tofu kebab recipe. Perfect as a snack or for a potluck or game night. I love finger foods, whether be veggie pinwheels, spring rolls, paneer cutlets, dip, nachos, avocado rolls – I just love them and are my all time favorites.


RECIPE DETAIL – Corn and tofu kebabs are infused with carrots, corn, tofu, ginger, onion and aromatic spices. They are loaded with flavor and taste amazing. Once all the ingredients are mixed together, the mixture should feel firm and hold together. If it is sticky, add more breadcrumbs and adjust seasonings. Tofu can be substituted with paneer.

Once the mixture is ready, wrap it around the wooden skewer and cook over a cooktop or in a oven. If choosing oven, make sure the wooden skewers are soaked in water for 30 minutes before rolling the mixture on to it, or else they will burn during grilling. Cook until all crispy and golden. Be careful not to OVERCOOK it.

This amazing appetizer can be wrapped in pita bread and enjoyed as a kathi roll. These insanely delicious kebabs will appeal to every palate and leave your guest wanting for more. Corn and Tofu Kebab Recipe

    What happened to the potato. I’m assuming you add that in to the corn etc.

    • RK says:

      Sunita, it’s mentioned in step #7 “Transfer it to a big bowl and add rest of the ingredients except oil.”

  5. Archana Arora says:

    Hi Ruchi,

    I have tried this receipe once and it came out awesome. Now i want to make it for a big batch of 20 people. Would it be okay to make the dough a day before the party or do i need to make it immediately before making the kababs?


    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for trying the recipe Archana and sharing your wonderful feedback with me. Yes, these kebabs can be made a day in advance – no worries. Have fun and if you manage to click some pictures then please share with me at

      • Archana arora says:

        Hey Ruchi can I just make the dough and freeze it for a day and make the kababs on the day of the party ?

      • Ruchi says:

        Have never tried freezing it Archana. I would suggest shaping them like kebabs and then freeze.

  6. Bhooma says:

    Hi. This recipe looks yummy. Will definitely try it this weekend (It is Thursday here). If I want to make them in the oven, how long and at what temperature would you recommend I have them in?

    • Ruchi says:

      Bhooma, bake the kebabs @350 degree F for 25 – 30 minutes or until light brown in color. Lightly brush them with oil/butter before baking. Oven temperatures vary so after 25 minutes into baking, keep a watchful eye on them.

    Loved the recipe and how you present the instructions..Perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Ameet says:

    Why carrots added, does it give a specific flavor?

    • Ruchi says:

      Yes, carrots add great flavor to these quick and easy kebabs.
      I personally like to use baby carrots because they save time but any carrots would work for this recipe.
      In particular, whole carrots add more depth of flavor to any dish. But if you are not a carrot lover, feel free to leave that out.
