Varatharacha Soya Curry (soya Cooked In Roasted Coconut Gravy)
This is a very typical Kerala preparation usually used to cook meats. Since soya lends a similar texture to meat, this recipe was adapted to prepare this preparation. In my recent visits to home, I saw that the roasted coconut mix was available in shops for sale so I got a few packets. This saves the effort and time required to dry roast the grated coconut. Ever since we got this powder, we have been using it a lot and I love the aroma of the roasted coconut with spices. If you have ever tried a roasted coconut based meat preparation from Kerala, you would understand when I say this soya is the fake meat curry.
