Soya Keema Matar ( Soya Nuggets / Meal Maker cooked with Green Peas)


A perfect vegetarian accompaniment for chapathi or roti; which is high in protein, low in calories and tasty too.



Ingredients:


Soya Nuggets - 100 grams

Fresh or frozen green peas - ½ cup
Onion - 1 
Tomato - 1(medium size) 
Ginger garlic paste - 1 to 1 ½ tsp 
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp 
Corriander powder- 2 tsp 
Garam masala powder - ½ tsp 
Cumin powder - ½ tsp 
Salt - to taste 
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp (finely chopped)
Mint leaves - 2 to 3 tsp (finely chopped)





Directions:

Pre - preparation :


Soak soya chunks in hot water for about 20 minutes or till it becomes soft.


Wash 2 to 3 times and squeeze the water completely.




Add the soya nuggets in mixer and mince or shred; keep aside.

Finely chop the onion and tomato. Keep aside.

Preparation: 

Heat oil in a pan ; add the finely chopped onion.

Saute till the colour changes after that add ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder and corriander powder.

Fry in a medium flame for a minute (If you think it is sticking to the pan add little water) and add tomato with salt.

Saute till tomato becomes soft.





Now add the peas; mix well and add 1 to 1½ cup of water along with the chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves.


Allow to boil and add the minced soya nuggets and garam masala powder.



Close the pan with a lid and cook in a low flame for 5 to 10 minutes till the soya is cooked and oil separates.



Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with any Indian flat breads (roti, chapathi...) or use as a filling for Sandwich.



Note:

If you are using dried peas, soak it overnight for nearly 7 to 8 hours and pressure cook the peas adding salt and water and add this to the gravy.

Adjust the water quantity and spice level according to your taste.
