Peppered Soya with Coconut & Fenugreek
Ingredients:1. Nutrela Soya chunks
2. Onion (chopped)
3. Tomato (chopped)
4. Mustard seeds
5. Fenugreek (Methi) leaves (do not chop)
6. Freshly grated coconut
7. Freshly ground black pepper
8. Garlic (chopped)
9. Any spice (masala) I have used paneer tikka masala
10. Green chillies (2-3)
11. Red chilly powder (1 tablespoon
12. Turmeric powder
Take the soya chunks, boil them in water with a pinch of salt.Once the water starts getting frothy you will come to know that the water has seeped into them.
You can see that the chunks are quite big in size. So we need to chop them a little. (You can use the smaller variety of soya chunks or use soya granules)
Take a kadhai (a type of thick, circular, and deep cooking-pot) add some oil (3-4 tablespoon) and let it heat up.
After the oil is hot enough, add a pinch of mustard seeds, chillies, onion, garlic, tomato, fenugreek leaves, turmeric powder, red chilly powder and a little bit of whichever masala you want to use.
Let the mixture saute for 1 or 2 mins till the water in the tomatoes evaporates and the onion and garlic turn golden brown and the fenugreek leaves have lost their moisture.
Add the chopped Soya chunks, a bit of the freshly chopped coconut and the freshly ground black pepper.
Add a little bit of water and salt. You can add more of the masala again, if you wish.
Stir the mixture well..
Let it cook open like that until the excess water evaporates.
After that cover the your soy vegetable with a lid.
Let it cook on a low flame for 3-5 mins with the lid.
And you are done!
You can garnish on top with some more coconut and pepper if you wish!
