Soya - Aval Biriyani

Print Friendly and PDF
I have adapted this recipe from her cookbook.As I was bored of eating my regular stuff and I wanted to try something new and hence one day I went through all the cookbooks I had.This recipe caught my attention because of the different medley of ingredients used in the recipe and hence gave a trial immediately for the dinner on the same day.It was nice to have that just for the variation from the regular stuff and infact its a healthy one.Though it is not the stuff which can be prepared for parties ,its worth trying once at home for our regular breakfast/lunch/dinner.I am just reproducing the recipe as it is mentioned by her.

Ingredients:

2 cups Thin rice flakes
1tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
1/4 cup mini soya flakes
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup finely chopped capsicum
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
2 cardamoms
2 cloves
1" cinnamon
1 star anise
1 bayleaf
salt to taste
oil,ghee as required

To grind:
1/2 bunch coriander leaves
6 cashewnuts
5 shit green chillies,fried

Method:
  • Rinse rice flakes in water until clean.Squeeze and keep it aside.
  • Grind all the ingredients under grind section to a fine paste.
  • Boil water in a pressure pan,add soya flakes and cook for 1 whistle.
  • Drain it,and add cold water and squeeze it.
  • Heat oil,ghee in a broad pan.Add bayleaf, masala ingredients and then saute onion.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste,squeezed soya and stir fry.
  • Mix capsicum,carrot,cabbage and stir fry in high flame.
  • Add chopped tomatoes,ground paste and saute for few minutes.Add squeezed rice flakes,salt and stir fry.
Serve hot with desired raitha and chips/fryums.

Abhilash Pillai said...

Hey! isnt this the same as aaloo poha?

I think if you remove aaloo from aaloo poha it will becomethis dish ...

Nice effort. If you could try adding aaloo it will taste superb. You need to have a stiff poha for that...
