Chatpata Soya nuggets and potato

   This is the post to share an experiment, a successful one with you all. Soya beans or soya nuggets are one thing that is not liked by any one of my family members. I kind of like and dislike the thing too. But I know it's my job to introduce good things to my family's diet. We all know that soya nuggets are so much beneficial to our health. So one fine day, I made my mind to cook soya nuggets in some interesting way. The recipe clicked me suddenly and I gave the curry a chatpata(tangy and spicy) flavour. To my surprise, everybody has licked the plate clean and it was a great side dish with roti/chapati. My daughter who hates soyabean, gave a thumbs up and ordered me to make it at least once a week. So without much ado, I'll share the recipe now, hope you all will find it interesting, too.

You Need :
Soya nuggets : 1 cup
Potato : 2, medium, cubed
Onion : 1, big, sliced
Ginger-garlic paste : 1 tblsp.
Green chillies : 1-2, finely chopped
Tomato : 1, chopped
Turmeric powder : 2 tsp.
Red chilli powder : 1-2 tsp.(according to your taste)
Tomato ketchup/sauce : 1 tblsp.
Green chilli sauce : 1 tsp.
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Salt to taste
Sugar : 1 tsp.

How To :
  • Wash and soak the soya nuggets in water for half an hour and then add in boiled water to cook for 5-7 minutes. Remove and drain the water and keep them aside. Boil the potato pieces till just done. 
  • Heat oil in a pan, add sliced onions and fry them till they are just brown. Add chopped green chillies and ginger-garlic paste. Mix well with onions, then add tomatoes and turmeric powder. Stir and cook till tomatoes get mashed with onions. 
  • Now add boiled potatoes and soya nuggets. Season with salt and mix well with onion-tomato mixture. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Then add tomato and green chilli sauce, add little water and mix well. Add red chilli powder according to your tolerance level and mix well with soya nuggets. Add sugar and pour about 2/3 cup hot water in it.
  • Cover with lid and let it cook until all water evaporates and soya nuggets soak all the spices inside. Check the seasoning and stir fry for some more time to soak all the excess liquid. Lastly add some freshly chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Remove from heat and serve warm with roti, paratha or even rice or pulao. {Hint : It will be a dry but a saucy dish]

All you need a freshly cut salad to go with it. Wasn't it a chatpata side dish? Do try and let me know if you have liked it or not........................
