Soya Keema Matar



          Soya in any form is always a healthy option to any non-veg. recipes. So let me share a simple side dish of Soya Keema Matar that can be enjoyed with pulao, jeera rice, plain biryani, paratha, poori, naan, tandoori roti or just plain chapatti. 

          Soya in general can be used to make a variety of dishes like tikkis, parathas, kababs, etc. You will be surprised to know that it tastes just like any mutton / chicken mince. So all vegetarians go ahead and give it a try by following a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.   







  • 1 cup soya granules
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas 
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger-garlic paste

  • 1 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1 tsp. ghee

          Make a paste of the ginger-garlic and all the dry spies along with some water. Keep aside. Soak the soya granules in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain and keep aside.

          Heat oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds, cinnamon, cloves and cardamoms. Then add the onion and saute till light brown.
