Soya Chunks Masala Curry

Hello Foodie friends,

Today I come to you with another Vegetarian recipe. It is a medium spicy curry of soyabean chunks. Soya is  an excellent source of protein and is very beneficial for health.
Soya Chunks are generally tasteless but when added to gravy it absorbs the flavours that it is cooked with. But soya needs to be soaked and washed well before adding to the gravy.
