Soya chunks and Potato Sabji

A mouth -.watering sabji for your kids with their favorite soya chunks and potatoes. This sabji is very easy to prepare for their lunch boxes. So simple to make this sabji. This sabji goes well with roti, parathas and also for any rice varieties.




This dish tastes good if you cook the potatoes and soya chunks nicely but not mushy. Do not overcook the potatoes also do not cut them finely. Do not soak the soya chunks more than 10 to 15 minutes. Make sure the soya chunks are dry before sauteing with the onions and tomatoes. This is the most important key step to keep the texture of soya chunks crispy. If you do not have soya chunks in your kitchen you can replace it with button mushrooms or even paneer cubes. The combination of onions, tomatoes with minimal use of flavours gives you a lingering taste in you tongue. Whatever vegetables you use don't skip the fennel seeds in this dish because you will be surprised when you taste the dish. In each and every soya chunks you can taste the aroma of fennel seeds. For this recipe I don't prefer any additional flavours like ginger garlic paste, cumin powder, coriander powder. If you want to add any extra flavours add in minimal amount.
