I have been asking you all to start having soya chunks. It is the cheapest source of protein.
1 kg soya chunks costs around 80Rs and 100gm soya got around 51gm of proteins. Cheap af.
Though after suggesting this thing, people fired me back with:
- soya fucks your testosterone levels and you will grow man boobs – Well no. Read this article to know more: https://www.fitmag.in/soya-beans-for-sex-change-and-hypothyroidism/
- They are not tasty (or how to cook them?) – Read on
All you need:
Red chilli powder, Cumin seeds, Mustard seeds, Corainder Powder, Turmeric, Salt, all those masalas.
Boil Soya Chunks in water, it will foam and let them boil on low gas for like 2 minutes. Rinse them with cold water and then squeeze the water out of them.
While you do this, cut onion, tomatoes and green chilly side by side.
Now take a pan or something similar utensil, add coconut oil/butter in it (5-10gm would do). Heat it. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds in it. Roast them for around 30 seconds. Add onion and green chilli to it and roast till onion turn brownish. Add a pinch of salt to roast them evenly.
Add tomatoes. Stir. Add Red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric and salt. Stir till tomatoes become soft. This mixture will start looking thick. Add half a glass water to this mix. Let it boil for like a minute. Add your squeezed soya in this mix, stir for some time and your tasty soya chunks are ready.
You can experiment with adding cream for thick gravy, or mix it with dal (more easier to eat that way)
I cook them like this and eat with rice and curd.
