  1. Make your marinade. Add all the ingredients to a bowl from the ground turmeric down to the black pepper and stir together into a paste.
  2. Add the yogurt and water to make a good consistency for coating tofu.
  3. Press your tofu for half an hour or so, to do this drain the water from the tofu using a sieve, lay a tea towl on a flat surface with single layers of drained tofu on and place paper towels on top. Add hard-back books on top of this to press the tofu.
  4. Next, cube the tofu and gently coat the it in the marinade. Pop the tofu in an airtight container and pop in the fridge for a few hours or overnight if you'd like the taste to be stronger.
  5. Soak wooden skewers in water for half an hour before you make the skewers, this will prevent them from burning.
  6. Heat your grill or BBQ and then thread the tofu and vegetables onto 12 skewers in a rainbow order.
  7. Cook for a few minutes on each side until cooked and starting to char and crisp at the edges.
  8. Serve with toasted pitta bread, salad leaves, cherry tomatoes and hummus.
  9. Eat, share and enjoy!
