Soya Balls Gravy - A creamier version!

Am finally back.........Not that I was busy, but I didnt cook anything blog worthy.And this was the one I tried few weeks back......From the day I've read soya chunks is rich in proteins and all goodnesses abt it, I've started to hunt for recipes and my main search was gravies and here is another version of soya chunks gravy dipped in a creamy sauce...I forgot the link where I got this recipe from...But it was soo yummy with rotis. Hubby was literally licking the bowl and complained that the quantity was too less for him....:)

Soya Balls Gravy
Soya chunks 2 cups
Onion 1 big
Tomatoes 2
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 tsp
Butter 1 tsp
Kasoori methi 1 tbsp
Turmeric a pinch
Red chili powder 1/2 tsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Cream 2 tbsp or 1/2 cup milk

Soya Balls Gravy

1. Soak Soya chunks in hot water for 30 minutes, then wash it in cold water 3-4 times each time squeezing the water from the soya to get rid of the smell. Heat oil in a pan. Saute the soya for 2mins and keep it aside.
2. Boil the tomatoes and onion in a cup of water and make a paste of each seperately.
3. Heat butter in a pan and fry onion paste till golden brown for about 10 mins. Then add the ginger garlic paste and fry for 5 mins. Add tomoto paste, mix well and fry for sometime. Now add the masalas and cook/fry till the oil seperates.
4.Add the soya to the gravy and add enough water to get a thick consistency. Add the kasoori methi and bring it to a boil.
5.Remove from heat and add the milk, switch on and cook till gravy becomes thick. Serve hot with phulkas or rotis.
