Spicy Soya Stir Fry

Soya chunks became part of our family after my mom successfully tested this very recipe during one of our lent period(abstinence from non veg items) and after looking at the glimpse of the dish, we all just gave a scream thinking its a non veg recipe in our lent and wondered what's gone wrong with mom.And still mom kept her silence...me & my sis were eagerly craving for chicken those days(that happens with me always when you say not to eat this/not to do that,we crave for that more,Isn't it??) we just gobbled up few of these and then sipped in a glass of water,ah..I still remember it as chicken,but only later did I come to know the wonder vegan meat was soya chunks and that's how this became part of our menu more during the lent period.So,friends enjoy this proteinicious healthy stir fry with rice or as snack.!!


Ingredients
soya chunks uncooked 1 1/2 cups
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
salt
to marinate
chilly powder 2tsp-2 1/2 tsp
coriander powder 1 1/2 tsp
pepper powder 3/4 tsp-1 tsp
garam masala 1/2 tsp
chicken masala 1/2 tsp
oil 2tsp / thick yogurt 2tsp
salt

oil 5tbsp (to shallow fry)


Method
-Cook the soya chunks in water for 10 mins on medium heat with salt and turmeric powder.
-Drain the water and squeeze out the excess water.Keep aside.
-Prepare the marination and check salt as soya is cooked with salt,only add salt to the spices.
-Coat the soya chunks in it evenly and leave aside for 30 minutes.
-Heat half of the oil mentioned  in a non stick pan and fry the coated chunks both sides till brown.Drain on a paper towel.
-Repeat the next batch with remaining oil.Drain on a paper towel and serve hot!

Servings~ 1 bowl

NOTES
* These are highly addictive ones,so make in larger quantities:D
* You can adjust the spice flavors as per your spice tolerance.
* This can be deep fried too.The oil consumption is more though I shallow fried it too.
