Tandoori Tempeh Tikka

As you know my husband needs to eat fermented food, so I got two packets of tempeh, he finished one but didn't warned to eat second one.  So he told me that I can use it for my purpose. Ok I am all in. Didn't wanted to make same Chinese dish with it, wanted to try something new. So made tikka from it and added green and red capsicum along-with onion and pineapple pieces and my diner was done. Tempeh is nothing but fermented soya ,stacked in patty form , its good to make burgers, i made meatballs from it. It has very distinct taste so if you are up for challenge then you can have this.

Ingredients :

4 oz. tempeh, cut in cubes
1 each green and red capsicum cut in cubes
1 onion cut in cubes
1/2 cup fresh pineapple cut in cubes
2 cups yogurt
1 tbsp. ginger, garlic chili paste
3 tbsp. tandoori masala , i like spicy so I added 3, you can adjust as per your taste.
Salt as per taste


In a big bowl, add yogurt in it. add ginger, garlic, chili paste and tandoori masala , salt and mix it. 
Add cut vegetables and tempeh and let it marinade for 2-3 hours. I knew that I was going to make this so I keep it in marinade for 4 hours.

When its time to cook , you can grill it on grill, stove top , oven , its your choice.
I did it in my grill pan on stove top.
Cook it till you get charred vegetables and it cooks but still have some bite.
Take it out and enjoy with green chutney. 
You can make a wrap out of it too.
