Chilli Soya

One of my favourite chinese dish. Soya chunks are commonly referred to as vegetarian meat and generally used as meat substitutes in several dishes. Protein loaded healthy and tasty dish, the Soya-chilli capsicum has soya chunks cooked with stir fried onions and capsicums in a chilli and soya sauce based gravy.

Ingradients :

Soya chunks / nuggets: 1 cup
Cornflour : 1 tsp.
Onion : 3 big, cubed
Capsicum : 1 large,  diced / cubed
Green chiilies : 3-4 , slit
Garlic & Ginger Paste : 1 tsp, chopped 
Soya sauce: 2-3 tbsp
Tomato sauce / ketchup: 1 tbsp
Chilli sauce : 1 tbsp
Vinegar: 1 tsp
Egg : 1 no.
Ajinamoto : 1/2 tsp. (optional)
White oil: 3 tbsp
Salt to taste


Boil water in a pan, add a little salt, soak the soya chunks. Cover the pan and let the soya chunks soak for 15-20 mins. Press and squeeze out excess water and keep aside.

Take a bowl, combine soya sauce, vinegar, gingar-garlic paste, egg, soya chunks and mix well. Marinate soya chunks for 30 mins.

Heat oil in a kadhai, fry soya chunk until golden brown. Keep aside.

In the same oil, add the cubed onion and capsicum pieces and saute for 3 - 4 mins till the onion and capsicums are tender. Then add slited green chillies.

Now add rest of soya sauce, tomato sauce, chilli sauce, salt, mix well so that all the soya chunks get coated with the gravy.

Take a bowl, combine cornflour in a little cold water (as per your requirement of gravy), cook for 5 - 6 mins till the gray become thick. Remove from fire, transfer in a serving dish.

Serve hot with noodles / chowmein or fried rice or roti/ paratha.
