Smoky Salad with North Indian dressing

This is a salad with minimal ingredients and a simpler version of North Indian Tikka/Kebab dishes. This is good for weight loss,maintaining a balanced diet. It is a healthy combination of Carb,protein,good fat,green vegetable and watery vegetable.


  1. Chop sweet potato,pumpkin and capsicum as bigger cubes.
  2. Cook soya chunks in boiling water along with salt until it is soft.
  3. In a pressure cooker, add the veggies (other than soya). Add a pinch of salt and add water along the sides. The water should not be more than 1/2 of the actual veggies level,just to avoid the bottom from charred.
  4. Cook on high for 2 whistles and release the pressure as soon as possible.
  5. After that, grill every set of vegetable.I did on stove top using Phulka wire roaster,arranging the veggies on it.
  6. Once it is partially charred, remove them.
  7. Squeeze soya chunks and add it to the vegetables.
  8. Finally add black salt, 1/4-1/2 cup thick curd,amchur powder,pepper powder,Chia seeds/roasted flax seeds,mint leaves and garlic powder.
  9. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes and can be served.

This can be served either warm or chilled.

  1. Instead of garlic powder, you can use roasted garlic cloves.
  2. Instead of using whole mint leaves, you can grind and mix with curd too. Replace amchur and black salt with chat masala also.
  3. You can add vegetables like potatoes,broccoli,carrot,zucchini also to this.
