Soy Pepper Masala

I have always wanted to do something spicy with soya chunks and my sister gave me this idea which aptly suited for phulkas, dosas etc. if you eat the chunks the spicy juice is what you will taste and not the bland soya flavor. Give it a try!


1. Small soya chunks - 2 cups
2. Onion -2
3. Tomatoes -3
4. Ginger garlic paste 2 tsp
5. Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
6. Chilli powder - 2 tsp
7. Coriander powder - 1 tsp
8. Cumin seeds - 1.5 tsp
9. Pepper- 1.5 tsp
10.Oil for sauteeing
11.Cinnamon stick-1,fennel seeds -1/2 tsp
12.Curry leaves .
13.Salt as per requirement.

Soak soy chunks in the hot water for 15 minutes.squeeze out the water from soy chunks and again wash it in normal water . squeeze out the water from soy chunks keep it aside. soak cumin seeds and pepper and grind it together.

Heat a oil in a kadai and put cinnamon ,fennel seeds. saute onion for 5 minutes. add ginger garlic paste.Add tomatoes after few minutes. Add salt and then chilli powder,coriander powder and turmeric powder.

After the raw smell goes add some water. Few minutes later add the soy chunks and let it boil for some time.Now add the ground cumin and pepper paste. Let it get boiled for few minutes and garnish it with curry leaves.

Serve hot with phulkas, dosas etc.
