Kebabs are primarily South east Asian and Middle eastern recipes but everyone now makes them by giving it their own touch and twist. There are simply so many flavors and combinations that can be worked out for kebabs that the possibilities are endless. Come summer and this is the perfect dish for a Grill party! I had to make it indoors though due to the downpour! I made chicken and veggie Kebabs. I did not picture the chicken ones but there are some instructions for making them. The chicken K were for the husband and I ate the veggie ones..
Onion cut into thick wedges
Green, yellow, red and orange peppers cubed
Zucchini cut into thick half moons
Button mushrooms, small ones left whole and the larger ones into half.
Chicken: 4 oz cut into cubes
½ cup yogurt
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp ginger
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp ground cumin
½ tbsp Garam masala powder
1 tbsp Lemon juice
Marinade the chicken in the yogurt mix for about 20 minutes.
Skewer the veggies on a metal skewer or wooden sticks. Once all lined up, brush the marinade on the veggies and then grill them for about 5 minutes each side.
For the chicken ones line them in a similar way and then cook on each side for 7-8 minutes.
No picture for the chicken one, I forgot about it.
You can remove the yogurt and a bit more lemon. Do not forget to marinade the veggies in the mix for about 20 minutes too. With the yogurt as the base the marinade tends to stick.
Onto my daily eats:
Chocolate oats with strawberry
Black bean brown rice with salad topped with hummus
Banana and strawberry
Snack 2: naval orange
Dinner was Kebabs with left over rice!
I am going to work on the presentation for a while and then sleep!
