When you are craving something that is tangy and spicy with a touch of sweetness, this is the perfect side dish to prepare if you are vegetarian and want something different. This is a good source of protein and you can prepare this in little time.




Soya granules-2 cups

Boil this in salted water. Squeeze the water.

cornflour-2 tablespoons

soya sauce -1 teaspoon

Ginger Garlic paste -1 teaspoon

We will not add salt to it because we have already boiled soya chunks in salted water.

In a pan add 3 tablespoons of oil and in two-three batches shallow fry the soya chunks, till they are crispy and red. Don’t fry it till brown. It should be pinkish /reddish in colour.



OIL -1 teaspoon

1 teaspoon of ginger garlic paste

1/2 teaspoon of julienned ginger

1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic

1/2 onion diced

1/2 onion big chunks

1 tablespoon of soy sauce

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

Add ginger-garlic paste.

Saute for a while.

Add two cups of water mixed with one table spoon of cornstarch to it.

Adjust the thickness of gravy as per your liking.
