Soya is supposed to be very good for women. It has full of Proteins and natural minerals. I have noticed most of the people don't like to eat those big chunks as it taste like flesh. But in case of me and my daughter smera we just love the taste and its texture. I also use the soya granules which can be added along with the fillings for samosas. Here i come up with my manchurian chinese version.


1 Diced Onion.

1 Diced Capsiums.

2 tbs Soya sause.

2 tbs Tomato ketchup.

1 tbs Chilli sause

1 tbs Chopped Ginger.

1 tbs Chopped Garlic.

1 1/2 tsp Corn flour.

3 tbs Water.

2 tbs Oil.

Salt to taste.


100 grms Soya chunks.

1 Egg.

1 tbs Ginger garlic paste.

1 tbs Soya sause.

2 tbs Cornflour.

Salt to taste.

Oil for deep fry.


Spring onions ( greens part)


Soak soya chunks in 3 cups of boiling water for about 10 min. When it becomes soft , drain the water and squeeze all the water from soya. Repeat the same process for 2 to 3 times to remove the raw smell of soya.

Later marinate the soya with egg , cornflour , ginger garlic paste , soya sause and salt. Keep aside for half an hour.
Mix corn flour with water and keep it aside.

Later deep fry these marinated soya chunks until it gains brown colour and keep it a side.

Heat some oil in a pan. Add fresh ginger and garlic. Saute for few sec and then add onion, capsium and salt to taste. Make sure the onions and capisum are half cooked.

Now add soyasause , ketchup and chilli sause. Sprinkle some water and saute again for a while and bring to boil. At this stage add the mixture of corn flour inorder to get thick gravy.

Lastly add the fried soya chunks and mix well.

Garnish with spring onions and serve hot.

Looks great suma. I am one of those who don't tried Soy chunks and didn't like it. Tofu is easier on the eye. Enjoy, Soya is very good for women. Japanese women, they say, never have PMS or Menopausal problems because they eat Soy products regularly!:)
