For the Tikka Masala | Marinade:

  • 1 cup Soy Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Oil
  • ½~1 teaspoon Red Chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Garam Masala (or Curry powder)
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • To taste salt

To make the Kebabs:

  • 1 14oz. Extra firm Tofu, drained and chopped
  • 1 Small Green Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Small Red Pepper, chopped
  • 6~8 Baby Bella Mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 Large Red Onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Cilantro, finely chopped


  • Combine all the ingredients for Tikka masala in a large mixing bowl. Add the tofu, peppers and onions. Mix well, cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes and for up to 2 hours.
  • Soak the skewers in water for 20~30 minutes.
  • Thread the marinated tofu and veggies on to the skewers.
  • Heat the grill on medium heat. Lightly grease it with cooking spray. Grill the skewers until nicely grilled on all sides. Serve hot.


  • Use extra-firm or super-firm tofu for this recipe. These will stand up to marinating and grilling.
  • Make sure to mix the tofu in the marinade very gently to avoid breaking the pieces.
  • Any vegetable that is easy to grill can be used. Peppers, eggplant, zucchini, onion, mushrooms, cherry/ grape tomatoes etc. would be perfect.
  • Grill the outdoor grill or grill pan well before placing the skewers.
  • If you do not have a grill or a grill pan, then simply saute the marinated tofu and veggies in oil in a nonstick pan.
