Soya Chunks Bhurji

I am so glad that many of my blogger friends are great fans of Soya chunks and it's really nice to see a variety of soya chunks recipes in your spaces. I am planning to try out a few soon :) I usually use soya chunks mostly in curries. But this time I thought of making a dry version and made this bhurji. Whenever there is leftover sabzi or masala, I use them to make filling for sandwiches later that day. This time also we enjoyed this bhurji with rice as well as in sandwiches. You can add other vegetables of your choice to make it more colourful and nutritious. These protein rich bhurji tasted delicious and I guess I will be making it often.



Serves: 3-4

You need...

1 cup Soya chunks
1 Onion chopped
1 Bell Pepper chopped
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Fennel seeds
1 tsp Ginger- Garlic paste
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
Kasoori methi (optional)
Lime (optional)
a few Coriander leaves
Salt
Oil



To prepare...

Boil about 3 cups of water in a vessel, add soya chunks and a little salt. Allow it to cook for 10 minutes. Switch off the stove, close the vessel with a lid and keep it aside for 15 minutes.Drain the water and once cooled, gently squeeze out the water from the soya chunks. Pulse the soya chunks in a blender 2-3 times to get a crumbled form. Keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard and fennel seeds. Saute onion and ginger-garlic paste until the onions turn slight brown. Add the bell pepper, sprinkle a little water, cover and cook until the bell pepper is completely cooked. Saute in between.

Now add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and salt. Saute well and add the crumbled soya chunks. Mix thoroughly and let it cook for a couple of minutes. If the mixture is too dry, sprinkle some water. Add garam masala and also add the kasoori methi if using by crushing between the hands. Combine everything well and finally add the coriander leaves and mix. If you desire, squeeze a lime on this.

Serve hot as a side dish with rice, chapathi or use as filling for sandwiches. Enjoy :)
