Soya Granules with Green Peas and Potatoes

Today I present a very simple, quick, tasty, and nutritious soya-based recipe that you can have with chapattis.

You will need: Soya granules, potato, onion, tomato, green peas, garlic, jeera, tejpatta, haldi, kashmiri mirch powder, dhania powder, garam masala powder, and dhania patta.

How you can prepare:
- Soak the soya granules in warm water for five minutes. Then squeeze. Keep aside.

- Cut potatoes, onions, and tomatoes in small cubes. Shell peas. Slice garlic. Keep aside.

- Heat oil or ghee in a kadhai. Add jeera and tejpatta. Now, add onion and garlic. Sauté.
- Add haldi, kashmiri mirch powder for coloring, and dhania powder. Add potato cubes and fry a little.
- Add the soya granules and fry a little.
- Now, add the green peas, salt, and tomato cubes. Lower heat and cover.
- Open lid after five minutes, check whether the potato and peas are tender. Then, add garam masala powder and mix well. Garnish with dhania patta and serve with chapattis.kl

You would have noted that I have not mentioned measures for the ingredients. That is because it all depends on how much of what you’d like to see in your recipe. Cooking is a lot about improvisation and I believe that cooking with this spirit can make it a joy and less of a daily chore. So, I leave it to you to improvise and customize the ingredients according to your liking, taste buds, or mood. However, specific queries are always welcome :-)
