This tofu is marinated in tikka masala, which is basically a spice blend made with ground cumin, garam masala, red chili powder, salt, and pepper. The tofu and veggies are marinated in coconut yogurt, the tikka spice blend, oil, and some lemon juice for at least 30 minutes. They are then threaded on a skewer and grilled until cooked through and charred. These kebabs are easy, smoky, and absolutely delicious. They are also great to serve as a light meal over rice or quinoa (or any other grain) pilaf.
