Fried Soya Chunks!

FRIED SOYA CHUNKS are my favorite. There is nothing much to it, just deep fried marinated soya chunks. These are spicy and crisp (though I prefer chewy ones) and are great appetizer. I love the combination of this with sambar rice too. 

You Will Need:

250g of Soya Chunks
1 tbsp Yogurt
Juice of Half a Lime
1 1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
1 tsp Red Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1 tsp Garam Masala
3 heaping tbsp of Cornflour
Salt to Taste
Few Curry Leaves
Oil to Deep Fry

The Cooking:

Boil soya chunks with enough water for 5 min or until they become soft. Drain and squeeze out the excess liquid thoroughly. OR cook them according to the instructions given on the back of the pack.

In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and curry leaves together and toss in the soya chunks. Add ginger garlic paste, yogurt and lime juice and mix well. Marinate this for 15 - 30 min. No need to add water to this marinade, the yogurt, lime juice and ginger garlic paste has enough water to bring the marinade together.

Heat enough oil to deep fry. Now fry the marinated soya chunks in hot oil till they turn crisp, it should take around 5 min. 

Serve with lime wedges.
Happy Cooking!
