Tandoori Gobi Recipe - Gobi Tikka Recipe

TandooriGobi4
Tandoori Gobi / Gobi Tikka serves as a great starter or even as a snack. As its oven baked/grilled its even more healthy cutting down oil sure better than the deep fried ones. First I planned to make it the same way I made paneer tikka...eventually I happened to see this recipe in a TV show by SK so made a note of it and here goes gobi tikka recipe from my kitchen.
Mittu loves gobi 65  and I was skeptical whether she would taste this gobi tikka......So I reserved only few gobis but to my surprise she loved it and asked for more...:)
