My Mom’s recipe

This recipe is very special as I learnt this from my Mom and after marriage when I made it for the 1st time at my Sasuraal (In-Iaws), everyone loved it as they never used to have this before.

And moreover it tasted like meat to them and everyone was happy with the outcome of something new and different.

I have been eating Soyabean in many forms and variations and suddenly I realized that I haven’t put any post on my website regarding Soyabean.

Nutrella Soyabean Sabzi is a weekly affair at my place and here I am today sharing my post on Soyabean. So come join me 🙂

Soyabean Curry recipe:

firstly, in a large pan/kadai heat oil. Next add whole spices like bay leaf, cinnamon stick, pepper corns & saute. Then add finely chopped onions and saute.

At this stage don’t forget to put salt as it will speed up cooking of onions and would help to brown it quickly.

Keep sauteing onions till colour changes to golden brown on low flame. If required add few spoons of water gradually to cook it evenly.

Add ginger and garlic paste. Saute nicely.

Also add chilli powder and turmeric. Now add coriander powder and saute.
