                                          Soya chunks are an excellent replacement for mutton, it is a source of protein for vegetarians. This curry just tasted like mutton curry and I wanted to share this on my blog. Very easy to make and goes well with rice and rotis.



Boil water, switch off and add the soya chunks to it. Squeeze the water out. Keep washing and squeezing the soya till the smell leaves. Add 2 tsp milk to the boiling water as it helps in removing the smell.

Slice 1/2 onion and chop the other 1/2. Take two medium sized tomatoes and chop them. In a pan. add a tsp of oil, fry fennel seeds, cinnamon (very little), coconut 2 tbsp grated and 1/2 copped onion. Once the onion has become transparent, add the chopped tomatoes and fry well. Cool this and grind.

In another kadai, add jeera (optional), sliced onion, curry leaves and 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste and fry well till raw smell leaves. You can add slit green chillies if you want the curry spicy. Add the ground masala, 1 tsp chilly pwd, 1 tsp coriander pwd, 1 tsp garam masala pwd, salt and soya chunks. Add 3/4 cup water and boil till the gravy reaches the consistency you want and make sure the raw smell is gone.

I added the final gravy along with soya chunks to the pressure cooker for 1 whistle as am a fan of pressure cooking gravies, it blends together with the soya well and the gravy tastes just right.

Add chopped coriander leaves as garnish and serve with roti or pulao. Yummy!

Hope you enjoy this dish!
