Soya Chunks Alu Curry

Print Friendly and PDF
Soya Nuggets is an excellent source of proteins for vegetarians and also has a meaty texture which adds the extra liking at my place.I include it in all possible ways like curries, gravies, pulav's, tikki's, pasta,manchurian, snacks etc.When I add soya nuggets to any dish,I make it extra spicy and masaledar as these soya nuggets when soaked absorb all the flavors make it more tastier.It also comes to rescue to me when I am out of vegetables or lack of time.I do it in pressure cooker which helps in saving lot of time and attention while cooking.I make it in a very similar manner like how I make alu mutter,just that I add soaked soya nuggets to it.It pairs wonderfully with rice/pulav and roti's and now let us peek how I make this curry.Ingredients:
1 cup soya nuggets
2 medium potatoes

1/2 cup fresh/frozen green peas
2 medium onions,diced
2 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
2 big tomatoes,finely chopped
1 tsp red chili powder

1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp
Garam masala
1/2 tsp kitchen king masala(optional)

1/2 tsp kasuri methi
2 tbsp chopped coriander

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tbsp oil
salt to taste

for dry garam masala:
1 bayleaf
2 cloves

1/2" cinnamon
1/2 tsp jeera

a pinch of hing

2 green chillies,slit

  • Soak soya nuggets in warm water for 10-12 mins.Squeeze out the extra water from it and keep it aside.
  • Grind chopped onions with ginger and garlic to a rough paste.
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the dry masala's one by one in the order cloves,cinnamon,jeera,bayleaf,green chili's and hing and fry until you get a nice aroma.
  • Add ground onion mixture and fry until it turns brown.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and fry until the oil leaves the masala.
  • Now add coriander powder,chili powder,kitchen king masala,kasuri methi and salt and fry well.Add the diced potatoes and peas and fry well for 2-3 mins.
  • Add the soaked and drained soya nuggets and fry again for a couple of minutes.Add approximately 2 cups of water and close the lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  • After the steam escapes remove the lid and add garam masala,coriander leaves and cook for 2 mins.Add lemon juice just before removing it from the stove.
Garnish with coriander and serve it hot with roti/paratha or pulav of your choice.
If you want to make it rich,add few tbsp's of fresh cream at the end to the curry.
