Soya Bean Ka Keema /veg Keema (minced Soya Bean Cooked In Spices)

Full of protein and flavor. I always prepare this dish for my vegetarian friends. This dish fits in well with other North Indian dishes and goes well with both rice and breads.

500 Gms Soya Granules

Soak Soy granules in hot water for 20 minutes. Drain, squeeze the water using your hands and set aside
In pressure cooker heat 2 Tbsp oil, add badi elaichi saute. Add in onions and a pinch of salt and cook till slightly pink
Add in tomatoes and cook till onions and tomatoes form a thick mix
Add in the ginger garlic paste followed by the masalas (Keema or curry masala, red chili powder) Saute for a minute
Add kasturi methi, salt to taste and pinch of sugar and soy granules. Stir and add 3/4 cup of water. Pressure cook till one whistle on a medium flame. Turn off heat
After 10 -15 minutes open the cooker lid, if you want a thicker consistency cook uncovered for 10 more minutes on medium flame and let water evaporate. Check for seasoning
Garnish with coriander and serve hot with rice or chapatti.
For keema or chicken curry masala I use shaan or MDH
Keema or curry masala may also be prepared by mixing equal portions of coriander and cumin powder and a little garam masala.
