Methi Malai Soya
My hubby loves Soya chunks a lot...He was asking me to prepare soya chunks for a very long time but then i was postponing it since i dint wanna prepare it the same old way..I was in search of recipes with soyachunks and that too i wanted something that goes well with my Veg Pulao too :)
Finally I found it in Veg Bowl... Mallika is the lovely lady behind this amazing blog which has great recipes and amazing photography..Do check her blog ...its lovely:)
So here it goes
soya chunks - 2 cups
Kasuri Methi - 1/4 cup
Fresh cream/Malai - 1/4 cup
Tomato puree - Made from 2 tomatoes
Garam masala - 1 tsp
chilli powder - 1 1/2 tsp
cumin powder - 1 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
water - 1/2 cup
Grind to Paste
Onion - 1
Green Chilly - 1
Ginger - 1 inch
Cook soya chunks in boiling water with salt for about 10 to 15mins.
Once Cooked Drain it and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a Wok and add in cumin seeds
Now add in the ground paste and saute till raw smell goes
Add pureed tomatoes and all the dry powders and cook well
now add in little salt for gravy as we have cooked soya chunks with some salt
Add in the soya chunks and kasuri methi and cook for 10mins
Now add in the fresh cream and cook for another 5mins...
Now pour in 1/2 cup of water and let it simmer for 2-3mins.
Now garnish with coriander and server it with Veg pulao, roti, cahapathi :)
