Vegetarian Kheema Mattar Fry | Soya Granules Stir fry

As you all know,kheema refers to minced meat..But dear friends,this is a vegetarian kheema matar recipe -very interesting one and for me it was another compliment from my elder one.His favourite is chicken and when I told him it was chicken thoran,he was just excited to grab it.To my surprise,he finished his meal early and told me "I think Mom,You can prepare this every day."

But, he actually doesn't know the ingredients and was tricked by his mom.The actual ingredient is none other than the soya granules.The recipe tasted so good like chicken or meat and a fat free ,cholesterol free recipe.If you like this recipe,do give it a try !!!

soya granules 3/4 cup
cabbage thin sliced 1/2 cup
onion 1 sliced
tomato 2 chopped
green peas 1/2 cup
green chilli 3-4
ginger 1/2'' piece cut shredded
garlic 3 cloves shredded
chilli powder 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
coriander powder 1tsp
garam masala /chicken masala 1tsp
fennel seeds 1tsp
mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
curry leaves
oil 3tsp

Soya granules

  • Dry all the water content and is ready to serve.

Servings 3 adults

* You can add 1/2 cup chicken stock instead of water if you are a non vegetarian to add more flavor.I have not used that,just a suggestion.
