soya chunks curry

soya chunks contain a huge amount of protein. It is also a major substitute for meat in most of the vegetarian diets. All these days, i eat a lot of veggies and there is only a very minimum intake of meat in my diet. cooking meat for one person at home is a real boring task. So i decided to make soya curry. Soya chunks are very tasty when cooked along with curry powders. It becomes tender, juicy and fluffy when cooked in thick gravy.
