SOYA CHILLY TIKKA


SOYA CHILLY TIKKA
I never actually liked Soya dishes very much although it is very rich in protein and good for health. But Soya Chilly Tikka hooked me to Soya and made me crave for more….
This dish can be had as a starter, it can be had as a snack or as a side dish, a meal accompaniment. You will enjoy this Soya delight anytime.

Soya Chilly Tikka - Sukanya's Musings

Ingredients
Soya chunks 2 cup
Onion - 1 (medium)
Capsicum -1
Tandoori Masala Powder – 1 tbsp
Red chili powder -1 tsp
Coriander powder -1 tsp
Cumin powder -1 tsp
Garam masala -1 tsp
Ginger paste - 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Corainder leaves for garnish
Lemon - 1
Oil
Method
Boil soya chunks for about 5 minutes with salt. Drain by passing through a colander. Rinse in cold water and then squeeze the soya chunks to remove the water. Take a big bowl. Add the soya chunks, then add Tandoori masala powder (you can make it fresh, recipe in my blog) or you can buy it from the market(It is available in India stores), Red chilly powder, Coriander powder, Cumin powder, Garam masala, Ginger paste and salt. Mix well as shown in the picture. The soya chunks must get completely coated. Allow to marinate for about half an hour to one hour. You can even marinate it overnight in the refrigerator and make it for the afternoon lunch. The longer it marinates the tastier it gets.
After marinating…..
In a wok take some oil and deep fry the soya chunks as shown in the picture. It should be a nice reddish-golden color.
Remove and set on Kitchen towel to drain excess oil. Once all the soya chunks are deep fried.
The next step would be Chop the onions and capsicum into thin long strips.
In a non-stick pan, take about 1 tsp of oil, add the onions and sauté until transparent, then add the capsicums until they are done. In the end, add the soya chunks and mix well. Serve on a platter as shown garnished with freshly chopped coriander leaves and a wedge of lemon. You can squeeze some lime and relish these delicious soya chilly tikka.
I would like to send this entry for Sia’s JFI –Soya event.

Soya chunks are also known as Soya meat. It doesn't have any meat, it is completely vegetarian.
