Can you even imagine the usually bland soya granules in such an interesting form? Be prepared to be surprised! Ginger-garlic adds its unique flavour to the Spicy Soya Bhurji, as do the well-chosen combination of spices.

Spice lovers can add more zing to this subzi by adjusting the amount of green chillies. I made it using only 2 teaspoons of oil to tighten the calorie count! For a variation, replace granules with grated tofu.

This subzi is a protein and calcium booster for growing bones; so make sure you give it to your child, by stuffing it into chapattis or as a sandwich filling, along with tomato ketchup!
