Soya Chunks Kurma

As soya chunks are good source of vegetarian protein I include in my diet either in some rice or curry.Today's recipe is a flavorful,simple soya chunks kurma which I adapted from Divya's space.Her version of making soya chunks kurma is easy and sounds interesting,doesn't need any fancy ingredients.So without any second thought I tried,the kurma was so delicious and creamy,we enjoyed with rotis for dinner.Here goes the recipe...............................................

  • Cook the soya chunks in the boiling water and rinse it in cold water couple of times,squeeze the excess water and set it aside.
  • Heat a pan with a tsp of oil,crackle the fennel seeds,cloves and cinnamon then add the chopped onion,saute it till transparent.
  • Now add the tomatoes and cook it mushy,add the ginger&garlic paste and fry it. Add all chilly powder,coriander powder and turmeric powder,give it a mix.
  • At this point add the grated coconut and cook it till the raw smell disappears.Put off the fire and let it cool. After cooling grind it to a smooth paste.
  • Heat a pan with the remaining oil and crackle the cumin and fennel seeds,toast few curry leaves. 
  • Now add the ground paste and fry it for a minute,then add the cooked soya chunks,stir it.
  • Add 11/2 cups of water and salt,let it simmer for 7-8 minutes or till it reaches the desired consistency. Finally add the chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve it roti or rice.


  • If the sourness is not enough add a tsp of lemon juice after turn off the fire.
  • The consistency can be adjusted to personal preference,as I wanted slightly thick cook it for little more time.
  • Few cashews can also be added while sauteing the onion for extra richness and taste. 
  • Adding garam masala powder is purely optional.
