Soya chunks are a fantastic substitute for meat in almost all non-vegetarian dishes. From biryani to pasta, you can use them in a variety of cuisines as well. Here are two simple recipes to get you started with soya chunks.
Pulao is one of the easiest dishes that use soya chunks. Pair it with the soya Manchurian given below for a perfect main course.
Soak the soya chunks in water till it becomes spongy. After that, rinse the pieces a couple of times in water.
Simultaneously, soak the rice in water as well.
Take a pressure cooker and add oil or ghee to it.
Once the oil is heated, add cumin seeds, bay leaves, peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, and cloves.
Chop up onions and toss them in after the spices.
Once the onion becomes golden brown, add vegetables of your choice.
Now, include the soy chunks and sauté for a few minutes.
Add the soaked rice to the cooker with 1 ½ cups water and close the lid.
After one whistle in high flame, put the cooker on simmer mode.
Wait for 4 to 5 whistles. Then, wait for the steam to release before opening the lid.
