I have been reading about Soya for quite sometime….though I have never been fond of it. On my husband’s request , I tried my hands on Soya chunks… and believe me the curry was delicious.

What do we need for this preparation??

  1. Soya chunks : 2 cups
  2. Onions: 1 nos . Chop them length wise finely
  3. Tomato: 1 nos : Dice them finely
  4. Tomato puree : 3-4 tsp
  5. Garlic : 2 pods .Chop them finely
  6. Ginger: 1 tsp grated
  7. Coriander leaves for garnishing
  8. Green Chilli: 1 -3 nos Chopped finely .
  9. Turmeric : 1/2 tsp
  10. Garam masala : 3/4 tsp
  11. Cinamon powder: 1/2 tsp
  12. Salt to taste
  13. Cumin seeds : 1 tsp
  14. Oil : 2-3 tsp

How to go about making this curry?

  1. Soak the soya chunks in boiled water for about half an hour. Squeeze out all the extra water from the chunks .Cut them into pieces if required.
  2. In a kadai , pour 2 tsp of oil . Drop Cumin seeds. Once they splutter , add sliced onions . Add a pinch of salt to remove the water content from the onions quickly. Saute for few more min.
  3. Now add garlic ,ginger, chopped green chillies to the sauted onions. Saute for 2 more min. I generally prefer medium spice in my food. So just used about 1 green chilli crushed. Use it to your spice.
  4. To the above mixture , add chopped tomato, tomato puree, turmeric powder ,cinamon powder & garam masala powder and saute for some more time.
  5. Add the soya chunks to this sauted mixture above . Keep stiring until the masala blends well with Soya. Sprinkle few droplets of water to it if required. Add the required salt & stir the curry on and off for 5- 8 min.
  6. Garnish the Soya Chunks curry with coriander leaves.
