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.
