Soya Chilly Chunks

Soya chunks are known for its various health benefits: It is known for high protein content- its exceeds than eggs, meat, milk. It is known to reduce the risk of osteoporosis in menopausal women. It enhances bone health and digestibility.

When i first tried out this dish i was bit apprehensive if it’s going to be liked by my family, as some people have pre conceived notions about Soya and its taste. Not many non-vegetarians would prefer having a substitute for meat. Well in my case my husband, who is my first & best critic instantly gave this dish a thumbs up. On his very first bite i was questioned “Why such less quantity”?

  • I have used Nutela soya chunks, you could use any other brand too
  • I did not add salt while boiling the chunks as this could lead to excess salt but if you wish to, you may go ahead.
  • As soya chunks soak in the flavour in no time, you need not wait for long to munch on them.
