Summer time special - Vegetables on a skewer, BBQ style!

Summer is in and I feel like I am running out of ideas to keep my dinners appealing and appetizing. This has been a long pending promise to my hubby, a veggie bbq for dinner! I couldnt get to do the post immediately. Better late than never..right :).

All you need : serves 4
Capsicum / bell peppers : 3 (large) (Red, yellow and green)
Onion - 1
Tomatoes- 2
Pear - 1 (could use a green apple- optional)
cheddar cheese - 10 cubes (I cubed a store bought cheddar block)
Cucumber - 3 (smaller English / Indian variety)
Bamboo or metal skewers

for the sauce:
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Kuzhambu powder - 2 tsp
olive oil - 2 tsps
Garam masala (All indian spices powder ) - 1/2tsp
Lemon juice - 2tbsps
Water - 2 tbsps

Mix all the ingredients for the sauce and blend well
Soak the skewers in water for a few minutes
Wash and cube the vegetables
Coat the vegetables, all separately and keep them aside in different plates
Make sure to dip in tomatoes as the last ones.
Arrange them on to a skewer and onto a baking tray
Pour put them in a sequence to make a colourful line up
Place a few cubes of cheese over the veggies for them to melt over them
Bake at 375 F for 40 minutes (make sure to use the pre heat time as well)
Serve with a side of (rest of the ) cheese cubes and a cup of whipped yogurt or curd (optional)
