Recipes - Soya Chilli Relish


200 gms. soya chunks
1½ tbsp. ginger-garlic paste
2½ tsp. pepper powder
¼ tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. garam masala
5 tbsp. tomato paste / ketchup
2 tbsp. soya sauce
1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. mama sita’s oyster sauce
1 sprig curry leaves
Salt - as per taste
2 tbsp. oil
3 medium onions  - sliced
1 medium capsicum
2 tbsp. oil -for frying soya


Soak the soya chunks overnight in water. Next morning, squeeze out all the water from the chunks by holding 3-4 pieces at a time. Then marinate them with ginger-garlic paste, pepper powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, sauces and salt for about half an hour. (Add less salt, because the sauces already contain salt). Transfer the marinated chunks  to a pressure cooker and cook for 3 whistles. Set cooker aside to cool .

Now fry the curry leaves and onions in 2 tbsp oil till they turn golden brown and set aside. Then add the julienned capsicum to the same oil and fry until soft and keep aside.

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a non stick pan and add the cooked soya chunks and keep frying until they are dark brown and all the liquid evaporates. Finally, add fried curry leaves/onion, capsicum and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes so the flavours blend well.

P.S. : Cooking Tip: Chop the bigger chunks into smaller pieces after squeezing out the water so that they cook well.
