Soy Kheema Mattar

Just like you would make the meat kheema mattar, we tried a version with soy granules which makes  a healthier option and another new recipe for vegetarians. Soy granules are a great way to add tons of protein to your daily diet. So definitely give this one a try.

Prep Time: 25 mins
Ingredients
Soy Granules: 1 cup
* We used the Nutrela soy granules we found at the Indian grocery store
Onions (finely chopped): 1/2 cup
Tomato (pureed): 2 med sized
Green peas (mattar): 1/3 cup
Ginger-garlic paste: 1 teaspoon
Green chillies: 2-3
Cumin seeds/Jeera: 1 1/2 teaspoons
Turmeric powder: 1 teaspoon
Chilli powder: 2 teaspoons
Coriander powder : 2 teaspoons
Garam masala: 1 teaspoon
Chicken masala: 1 teaspoon (optional)
Whole spices: 2 Bay leaves, 4cloves, 1 star anise and 1 cardamom
Coriander leaves to garnish
Oil
Water to cook the soy granules

Boil 3 cups of water with some salt, turmeric powder and chilli powder. Add the granules and let it cook. It will expand a bit and soften up. Cover and leave it on low gas for about 5-10 mins. Turn off the gas and keep aside. Heat oil in a deep kadai or dish. Add the cumin seeds. Add the green chillies and ginger garlic paste and saute. Now add all the whole spices, saute. Put the chopped onions and fry. Add some salt and all the spice powders and saute well. When the onions have cooked, add the tomato puree and 1/4 cup of water  and cover cook. Now strain the soy granules and add to this mixture. Add the green peas and let it all simmer in the gravy on low heat. Adjust the spices accordingly. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve hot with rotis.
