Mild Soya Nugget Curry

Bebo’s reaction to soya chunks are worth watching. He closes his eyes, rubs his tummy and says ‘MMmmmm…’. No idea where he learnt that from!!

I like soya in a hot spicy gravy, where in it can absorb all the flavors and taste really yummy, but Bebo prefers everything on the milder side. So this easy-peasy milk-based mild curry that features  now and then in our menu for the kiddo’s sake.

This is adapted from one of  Nita Mehta’s cookery books.

 

Ingredients:

  • Soya Nutri-Nuggets                :   50 gm, about 1-2 cups (dry weight)
  • Hot Milk                                       :   1 cup
  • Tomatoes                                    :   2 big, pureed
  • Green Peas                                  :    1/2 cup, frozen
  • Chili Powder and Salt             :    1 tsp each, or per taste

Method:

  1. Wash the dry soya chunks and soak them in hot milk for at least an hour.
  2. Puree the tomatoes. Heat a big pan and add the tomato puree. Add salt and chili powder.
  3. Add the frozen peas and cook for a minute.
  4. Add the soya chunks along with the milk. Cook till the gravy is slightly thick.
  5. Check the seasonings and adjust accordingly. Serve hot with chapatis or puris.
Note:
The original recipe had lemon juice, garam masala, 1″ cinnamon & 2 cardamoms, but I always skip them.
Increase the spice level for adults.
