Need To Have
- Soy chunks - 2 cups
- Onion - 1 medium
- Green Pepper Or Capsicum - 1 small
- Tomato Puree - 4 tablespoon
- Garlic - 3 cloves
- Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
- Chilli Powder - 1 teaspoon
- Coriander Powder - 1 teaspoon
- Cumin Seed Powder - 1 teaspoon
- Fennel Seed Powder - 3/4 teaspoon
- Coconut Paste - 1 tablespoon
- Curry leaves - 1 sprig
- Coriander Leaves - to garnish
Wash the soy chunks two or three times. Chop the onion, garlic and the green pepper. Heat oil in a pressure pan, add the onion, garlic and green pepper, saute for a few mins. Add the tomato puree, saute well, add all the powders and coconut paste, mix well. Add the curry leaves, mix, add the soy chunks, add enough water to cook the soy ( about three cups or more), add salt, pressure cook for 1/2 the time you take to cook rice. It's done, garnish it with coriander leaves and serve it with rotis or any rice. I didn't have coriander leaves that day, so left it out.
Alternatively you can soak the soy chunks in boiling hot water for 30 mins, then proceed with the recipe and avoid the pressure pan.
Don't leave out the green pepper, it gives a nice flavor to the dish.
