This protein-rich combination of chana and soya is sure to steal the show, as the texture and flavours will be loved by everybody young and old. Flavoured amply with masala pastes and powders, and kasuri methi for a final highlight, the Chana Soya Masala is a delightful subzi that is very easy to prepare. Just remember to soak the soya nuggets in warm water for at least 10 minutes before using them.

Excellent recipe.. I cooked it in an instant pot and it turned out perfect. All the spices soaked into the soya chunks. It was served with fresh Roti and curry aloo with spinach.

The recipe was really good! I made a little addition of green chillies and butter in the last. All in all a great recipe!

   Hi Pragna, Thanks a lot for sharing your comment. We would not recommend using whole soyabeans as they contain some anti-nutritional factors which are usually removed while processing. Happy Cooking!!
