Wash, peel the eggplant and cut lengthwise to 1 inch slices.

Deseed the bell pepper and cut them into big cubes. Cut the tomatoes into half.

Add all the vegetables to a big bowl.

Preparing the Marinade:

Add oil, lemon juice, red chilli flakes, turmeric powder, cumin powder, salt, garlic and finely chopped cilantro to the mixer and blend it to fine paste.

Now add the prepared marinade to the vegetables and toss it really well. Marinate for 30-45 minutes.

Heat the grill to medium heat, arrange the vegetables and cook them for about 5-7 minutes or until done. The vegetables should be cooked but should not turn mushy.
