BBQ Ladyfingers

BBQ Ladyfingers

Old Recipe Savoury,Savoury

Name me a society that doesn’t love barbeque. It doesn’t exist. Mankind is barbeque celebration. Ted Nugent

Every wondered how much can we really grill? A barbeque dinner hasn’t always been my favourite. My years abroad told me that a barbeque meant plates of meats and I would be stuck with a simple, starchy baked potato.

But after I moved here, BBQ meant a whole new world filled with platters of hearty vegetables and paneer in various marinades, sauces, and seasonings.

This tandoori vegetable is inspired from the tiger safari trip at Bandhavgarh. Just a few basic simple seasonings make a world of a difference to a grilled veggie and the taste is amazing. Even more unique is that very few think of applying this to the ladyfinger – but trust me, they taste so yummy!

Surprise your guests with these ladyfingers and if your kids are fussy, pair them with some tandoori potatoes, paneer and other kid-friendly ones.
