make this easy to prepare dish

  1. Preheat oven or grill to 450 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet. Whisk marinade ingredients and Tandoori Spice Pack with ½ cup water. Add Hot Spice, as desired.
  2. Prep vegetables and tofu/paneer and mix with marinade in a plastic or ceramic bowl. Set aside for a minimum of 1 hour (even overnight), mixing periodically to ensure even coating on all sides.
  3. Spread out vegetables and paneer/tofu on a baking sheet or fix on skewers, 1 inch apart with same vegetable on a skewer to ensure even cooking. Mix 1 tablespoon oil with any leftover marinade and set aside for basting.
  4. Bake on oven top shelf for 20–40 minutes or barbeque the skewers on a grill, turning every 5 minutes to cook on all sides, and basting with the marinade/oil mix. Cook until the vegetables and tofu/paneer are lightly charred. Tip: Hard vegetables will take longer to cook so be careful not to burn the soft vegetables. Vegetables should be crisp but cooked.
