Soya Chunks Curry | Easy Soya Chunks Recipes

Another monday after a busy weekend with lots of shopping for mittu for her sports day next week. 1 more week and we have her interview with the preschool and I am already having sleepless nights while her father is confident that she will get through easily......keeping my fingers crossed :)

Coming to the recipe, I had bookmarked this recipe long back and finally gave a try last week and here is the recipe with stepwise. This curry is very easy as it comes with no grinding part but is very flavourful and yummy.
Soya Chunks Curry Recipe


Soya chunks curry Recipe
Recipe Source : Raks Kitchen
Ingredients:

To Temper:
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Cinnamon - 1 small piece
  • Cloves - 2
  • Fennel seeds(Sombu) - 1 tsp
  • Oil - 1.5 tbsp


I just halved the recipe as I cooked for just me but have given the measurements from the orginal recipe with my tweaks :)

Soya Chunks Curry Recipe
Method:
Pressure cook soya chunks with salt for 1 whistle along with a garlic pearl or a 1/4 inch cinnamon piece (just to get rid of the soya raw smell) . Wash it atleast twice, drain water completely, squeeze it well to drain the excess water. Keep aside. In a pan heat oil - add cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, curry leaves and ginger garlic paste fry for a minute.
Soya Chunks Curry Step1
Then add green chillies and onions and fry until onions turn slightly browned. Then add tomatoes and fry until raw smell of tomatoes leave. Add turmeric, chilli, garam masala powder and required salt and stir well.

Soya Chunks Curry Step2
Sprinkle little water for the masalas to blend well. Now add the cooked soya chunks and stir for 5mins. Keep in low flame and allow the soya chunks to get nicely blended with the masalas . Switch off and serve hot with rotis.
Soya Chunks Curry Step3
This a very easy curry with no soaking in prior, no grinding part perfectly suits weeknight dinners with rotis. You can wrap it with raw onions and have it like a frankie too. And now the mini soya nuggest available is better than big ones as it cooks faster and easily absorbes the spices and flavours.


My Notes:
  • I read in a tamil magazine that to get rid of the raw soya smell while pressure cooking / boiling the soya chunks itself a small of cinnamon or a garlic pear or even cardamom can be added.
  • As soya chunks is very bland add more spices to make it flavourful.

  34. We love soya chunk with peas or cabbage or even as soya "dal ghosht". My tip for making chunks absorb flavours is to add masalas to chunks after you squeeze the water out, then marinate for 15 minutes or so in this masalas. Then cook chunks.
