Grilled Vegetables with Mint Sauce

I feel as though this is too easy to really call it a recipe. But it's good and fast and simple and healthy, so why not share it? We had this vegetable dish last night as a light dinner, and anyone in my family who actually ate the vegetables (my sisters still haven't discovered the pleasure that comes from eating red peppers or zuchinni) loved the combination of the masala with the yogurt (on the vegetables and in the sauce). And of course, if you can't lay your hands on a grill, or you're simply too eager to try this to wait for your grill to heat up, you can always broil the veggies.
