Soya Matar Pasanda & Soya Chunks Pasta

Another Soya dish this month.....I found this recipe on the box of Nutrela(The most consumable soya chunks producing Company in India). The Pic looked so yummy, I thought to gave it a try, even though I had planned another Soya dish that day. It goes very well with rotis or any kind of Indian bread.

Ingredients :
Soya chunks : 1 cup(unboiled)
Green peas(bring in room temperature if using frozen) : 1/2 cup
Onion paste : 1/2 cup
Ginger paste : 2 tsp.
Garlic Paste : 2 tsp.
Tomatoes : 2-3(medium, finely chopped)
Cumin seeds : 1 tsp.
Turmeric Powder : 1 tsp.
Red Chilli Powder : 1-2 tsp. or as per your taste
Garam Masala : 2 tsp.
Salt to taste
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :
  • Heat water in a pan. Put soya chunks in it for 4-5 mins. Once it fluffs up, remove from heat, let it sit in warm water for another 5 mins. Then drain and keep aside. 
  • Heat oil in a pan, temper with cumin seeds, when they start to crackle, add ginger-garlic-onion paste and stir fry for 2-3 mins or until raw smell goes away and paste get a light brownish color. Add chopped tomatoes now, turmeric and red chilli powder, salt and cook until spices blend well and tomatoes soften. 
  • Now add soaked soya chunks or nuggets and green peas. Finally add garam masala powder and mix well together. Add about 1 cup water and cover pan. let it boil for 4-5 minutes.
  • When you get your desired consistency of gravy, remove from heat and serve. Pasamda is a dry gravy dish, so remove when spices nicely coat the soya chunks and green peas. 
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with rotis or any kind of Indian bread.
Soya Chunks Pasta(Pasta with leftover Soyabean Curry) :

 I had little leftover from the curry. Next Day, I prepared this pasta with leftover soya curry and it was very delicious..try it out sometime, friends...

Method :
  • Cook Pasta in enough water till done. Heat oil in a pan, add sliced onions and chopped garlic, saute for 3 minutes, then add leftover soyabean curry. 
  • Mix well everything, season with salt and black pepper to taste. 
  • Serve hot immediately.
