Mealmaker(Soya Chunks) Fry - Ground Soya chunks fried in oil with spices

1.Simple Soya Fry:

I've been doing this over 15 yrs.Take 100 gms Soya chunks and boil them with 1 tsp chilli powder and 1/2 tsp salt for 2 mins in 1 litre water,then after dew mins,take them out and squeeze the excess water(don't deshape them) and put 1/2 tsp chilli powder,1/4 tsp mutton masala or curry masala powder- optional,a pinch of turmeric powder and 1/4 tsp salt and mix them well and shallow-fry them with curry leaves and mustard seeds with 2 tbsp refined oil in a frying pan,stirring it for 3 mins on good flame (till they get light-brown on the sides).
U can M/Wave it on high for 5-7 mins after applying oil, mustard seeds,curry leaves and other spices

2.Such a tasty and Easy recipe.This will taste like keema balls(Mutton Cola) fry. U can taste this cola as such or do gravy or Kofta Curry with it.Here is the recipe.
