Soya Gravy

For this soya gravy, I tried a mix of Chinese sauce flavors in our usual gravy.
It added extra flavor and taste to soya :-)
Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 30 min
Serves: 2


  1. Soya Chunks - 1 ½ cup
  2. Onion - 1 cup finely chopped
  3. Tomato - 1 cup finely chopped
  4. Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
  5. Green chili sauce - 1 tbsp (green chili can be used)
  6. Salt to taste

To marinate:

  1. Turmeric powder - 1 pinch

1. In a medium sized pan, add soya chunks. Then add water to the level soya gets immersed. Bring it to boil. Keep in medium-low flame for 5 min or till the soya gets doubled in size. Strain them and rinse with cold water. Squeeze them to remove water.
2. In a mixing bowl add cooked soya and all the ingredients given in “to marinate” section. Mix them well. Sprinkle water if needed to mix evenly. Allow it to rest for 10 min. Heat a pan, dry roast the “marinated soya” till it turns golden brown.
3. Now heat the same pan with oil, add cinnamon cardamom cloves powder (it can also be added as whole). Then add onion and ginger garlic paste. Saute them for 3 min. Then add green chili sauce.
4. To this add tomatoes and saute for 2 min. Add the roasted soya, 1 cup of water. Bring it to boil and keep in medium flame for 10 min or until it gets thickened and oil gets separated. Garnish with cilantro.
