Soya Chunks Capsicum Masala Recipe

I always stock up  Soya Chunks as it is my rescue when veggies are out of stock.It can pair up well with both rotis and rice so we love it.I made this spicy Soya Chunks Curry with Capsicum and it turned out to be super delicious that the entire bowl was wiped clean so that justifies that the gravy was good right?! This works well for wraps too

My Notes:

  • You can make it as gravy by adding more tomatoes.
  • You can replace soya chunks with any other vegetables or even paneer.
  • The spice powders are your preference.Adjust to your liking.
  • Freshly ground spices add extra flavour to the gravy so don't skip.You can run it in mixie too.
