Soya are rich in vitamin E and fibers. Regular intake of soya reduces risk of heart diseases, prevent breast cancer, reduce cholesterol and many more. There are lots of soya products like soya milk, soya nuggets, soya flour which are very very healthy. I am sure there are only few people who love the taste of soya. In my family, I am the only person who adore soya products. When my mom visited my place she brought these soya bean out of which I decided to prepare a curry for the first time. To my surpirse, eveyone loved it. Frankly, the matter that i dont like is smell of cooked soya bean but I love its flavour which is just perfect when its mixed up with masalas. This curry goes well with chappati, naan, kulcha etc.


1 Cup Boiled Soya.

Whole Masala (1 Stick Cinnamon, 3 Cloves, 1/2 Star anise, 1 cardamom, 3 black peppercorns)

1 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste.

2 Medium size Onions.

2 Tomato.

1 tsp Jeera.

1 Green chilli.

1 tsp Kashmiri chilli pd.

1/2 tsp Turmeric pd.

1 tsp Coriander pd.

1 tsp Garam masala.

1 tsp Oil.

Coriander leaves for garnish.


Soak soya overnight and pressue cook them till its done.

In a pan heat oil. Add Jeera and whole garam masala. Fry them for a sec. Then drop ginger-garlic paste, greenchilli, and onions. Saute onions till they become translucent. Now add tomatoes, red chilli pdr, coriander pdr, turmeric pdr, garam masala and salt. Saute till u get a nice aroma and all the ingredients are well fried in oil.

Add cooked soya and enough water to get a thick gravy. Adjust with salt. Bring the curry to a boil and remove from flame.

Garnish with corinander leaves.

Serve hot with chapati or naan.
