Palak Soya Bean Curry (spinach & Soybean Curry)

This combination of Spinach and Soya bean chunks is very unique. I tried to make this recipe for the first time and it turned out quite nice. I have used Everest sabzi masala in this recipe, but you can use any sabzi masala or the regular cumin, coriander powder along with Garam masala.
