Soya Bean Fry

by AshaCherian
Soya Bean Fry is an excellent side dish for those who want to refrain from meat. Rich in protein with a content almost equalling meat, soya chunks are considered the best and easily available substitute. A variety of dishes can be prepared with soya chunks and Soya Bean Fry is one such dish pairing well with hot rice and even with roti or chappatis. Fat free soya chunks have a tendency to absorb flavours and hence require an extra addition of spicy flavours.Soak soya chunks in water for a few minutes, squeeze out well and cook with essential spicy ingredients in a pressure cooker. Drain off water completely and fry cooked soya chunks in coconut oil until a rich lingering aroma of fried masalas fills the entire room. Enjoy tasty and nutritious Soya Bean Fry.
