I came across this recipe for Soya 65 while blog hopping on Google+ and I loved the first look of it and had bookmarked to give it a try. We enjoyed it till the last piece when I made it. It is a very easy and simple preparation and a must try for Soya chunks fans. 

Here is the recipe..

Serves 2 as a snack or a sidedish.

Ingredients :
Soya chunks - 40
Water as required
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Teaspoon
Salt as per taste
Red Chilli Powder - 2 Teaspoons or as per spice level
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 Teaspoon
Coriander Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Cornflour - 2 Teaspoons
Yogurt - 1 1/2 Tablespoons
Red food color a pinch (optional)
Tandoori Masala - 1/2 Teaspoon (optional)
Oil for deep frying or shallow frying
Coriander leaves for garnish

Method :
1. In a cooking vessel bring water to a boil. 
2. When the water is briskly boiling add the soya chunks and cook for a few minutes till they turn double in size.
3. Using a colander remove all the water and leave the soya chunks aside to cool down.
4. Squeeze the chunks gently to release the water.
5. In a mixing bowl add the soya chunks. You may cut each into half if desired.
6. Add ginger garlic paste, salt, chilli powder, turmeric coriander, coriander powder, yogurt, cornflour, red food color and tandoori masala. Mix well to combine. Leave it aside for 30 minutes.
7. Heat oil for deep frying or shallow frying as desired. I deep fried them.
8. Fry them on medium flame till well cooked and golden. They will be bright red in color if using food color.
9. Remove on to plate lined with absorbent paper towel. 
10. Fry the remaining soya chunks in the same way.
11. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Enjoy Soya Chunks 65
