Grilled Broccoli? Yum! Grilled Cauliflower? Delicaso! Tandoori masala? Oh yes! My dinner yesterday was a triple treat with the three coming together with a spicy cabbage salad & homemade whole wheat tortillas (Phulkas). And, it was all super healthy, just about 200 calories per serving. Oh, did I mention that it was Deee-lectable? Because, it was indeed.
So…. I am trying to eat healthy. Not for any particular reason, just for general well-being. Being the foodie that I am and with food blogging added, it is almost impossible for me to go on a crash diet or skip any meal in general. Portion control and gorging on my favorite veggies is something I can do without the blink of an eye.
Translated, you will probably be seeing salad and soup recipes more often on the blog! From my experience, I have realized that the key to healthy eating is keeping your refrigerator full at all times. There is nothing that inspires you to cook healthy than having fresh ingredients staring right at you!
Well, my latest trip to the grocery resulted in some excessive vegetable shopping. Shopping does that to a woman, wouldn’t you say? 😛 Anyways, I for one cannot resist when it comes to farm fresh vegetables. There is a voice screeching in my head, “Take this one! Take that one too!” If you know me, you would know it is hard get away from that voice. Ask my husband. 😀
With the huge broccoli cauliflower and cabbage heads not being able to fit into my tiny fridge, I had to improvise. Behold! Tandoori masala marinated, grilled broccoli and cauliflower kebabs were born! They had a cabbage salad twin born a few seconds later! (Pardon my poor sense of humor :P)
Never having played with Indian masala and broccoli, grilled broccoli was a huge success! Just like cauliflower, the grilled broccoli had absorbed the flavors of the marinade very well and they maintained their crunch after grilling which is the key to any good vegetable kebab recipe.
While you can enjoy this with rice too, wrapping them up in a tortilla (left over phulkas-Indian whole wheat tortillas, in my case) with freshly onions and cabbage/lettuce will cause your mouth to explode with deliciousness!
