Here is an off-beat but awesome tikka made with mushrooms and coloured capsicum, with a dash of onion for crunch and myriad spices for taste.

The Mushroom and Capsicum Tikka relies on a large range of spices and spice powders, but you are sure to find all of them in your kitchen shelves, so you do not have to worry.

Carom and caraway seeds work wonders in spiking up the aroma and taste of this tikka, and so do other ingredients like dried fenugreek leaves and chaat masala.

This is a really flavour-packed and exciting treat for mushroom lovers, and is sure to make tea-time very special. You can also serve it as a starter at parties . Green chutney goes well with this tikka.

Its a nice recipe.but i think there should be only green capsicum since its sometimes difficult to find colourful capsicum.& there should be no ajwain & shehjeera.Because of these two things the dish will become bad in taste.overall its good.
