Soya Beans Curry(dry version)

Last week when I was cleaning my pantry found out a packet of soya beans and made this curry for Sunday lunch.My mom makes this curry with dried mochai(field beans) but I tried with soya beans.For my surprise this curry turned out very delicious which goes very well with sambhar rice and variety rice or eaten as a snack as such.My kiddo liked this curry a lot, now to the recipe..........
