PREP TIME: 10 Mins
COOKING TIME: 25 Mins
Soya Chunks/Meal Maker– 1 Cup
Onion – 1
Tomato – 1
Mustard – 1/2 teaspoon
Urad dal – 1/2 teaspoon
Curry Leaves – 1 sprig
Salt – per taste

STEP 1: Wash and soak the soya chunks in hot water for 10 minutes. The soya chunks will absorb the water and double up in size.
STEP 2: Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and wait till it splutters, add urad dal and curry leaves.
STEP 3: Add the chopped onion and tomato and cook till the oil is separated from the mixture.
STEP 4: Drain the water from the soya chunks. Squeeze the extra water and chop each piece into 4. Add this to the onion-tomato and mix well.
STEP 5: Add salt, masala powder, coriander powder and the ¼ cup of water.
STEP 6: Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Open the lid and cook on low heat for 15 minutes by stirring and mixing every 2 – 3 minutes.
