A yummy gravy for all the soya lovers.
Soya chunks were introduced to me very late, I guess after my marriage at one of my hubby’s friend’s home. Neither my mom or my in-laws ever made soya chunks at home. I took an instant liking for them as yes they are a great substitute for meat. Full of proteins and texture like meat. At least gives a feeling of eating something non veg. And when it is a part of a curry, it becomes all the more interesting.
- Soya Chunks : 1 bowl, boiled
- Corn : Half Bowl, boiled
- Onion : 1, sliced
- Karipatta : a few leaves
- Tomato : 1, pureed
- Garlic : 4 to 5, crushed
- Rai : 1 teaspoon
- Jeera : 1 teaspoon
- MOMmade Haldi Powder – Half teaspoon
- MOMmade Chilli Powder – 1 teaspoon
- MOMmade Dhana Powder – 1 teaspoon
- MOMmade Garam Masala – 1 teaspoon
- MOMmade Kitchen King Mazala – 1 tablespoon
- Butter – a small piece
- Oil – 1 tablespoon
In a pan, add butter and oil. (well I was in two minds so added both) Once it heats up, add rai, jeera, karipatta and crushed garlic. Fry for a few minutes. Then add the sliced onions and fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt as well. It will help tenderise the onions faster.
Add tomato puree, fry and then add all the spices too except the garam masala. Cover for a few minutes and let it cook.
The entire masala must be fried really well. Then add water as per your preference or thin or thick gravy. Once it bubbles add the soya chunks and corn. Finally add the garam masala. and let it cook for a few minutes for the soya chunks to soak the flavours.
And there you go. Serve it with garam roti. I sprinkled some crushed pepper as well. It gave a nice warm, happy feeling to consume this. Again healthy and yummy of course. And again a goo option if you are out of vegetables at home.
BE YUMMY. BE HEALTHY.
