Independence Day Special - Patriotic Skewers

Partiotic skewers4

At the strike of midnight of the August 15, 1947, India shook off the shackles of British Rule and became free. It was a night to be remembered always :)

Yes!! We Indians proudly celebrate out Independence day today :)

The feel of patriotism has spread all over and the celebrations of the day are remarkable.

It is celebrated with flag hoisting ceremonies and cultural programs all over the country. The main program is held at the Red Fort where the Prime Minster unfurls the National Flag and it is saluted by Guns.

My blog owes to celebrate the wonderful occasion too.

Here I go with skewers that represent our beautiful national flag :)

Note: The blue bead is just for decoration and not edible ;)

Ingredients:

Bell peppers / capsicum (Red and green)
Cottage cheese (Paneer) cubes
Wooden skewers or tooth picks
Lemon extract
Chilly powder
Gharam masala
Salt

Partiotic skewers

Method:

Dice the bell peppers and paneer into cubes.

Thread them into the tooth pics sending in the green capsicum first followed by paneer and red capsicum piece.

Apply some olive oil on your skillet and arrange the skewers on it to roast them. Turn the skewers in intervals to roast them on all the four sides.

In a plate mix some lemon extract, salt, gharam masala and chilly powder to make a paste.

Now apply the lemon chilly paste to the roasted skewers and allow it to marinate for few mins.

Simple and colorful skewers are ready to serve. :)

They are healthy, spicy and attractive snacks to serve as starters :)

Happy making :)

Note:

The seasoning and the choice of vegetables is upto your imagination. Freak out with your own choice :)

Grilling the vegetables is a good option if you have facilities. Else roast it as I have said above.
