soya nuggets curry

Soya nuggets and TVP , features regularly in our Menu at Home. We just love this meaty protein and I try to incorporate these in our meals in variety of way.Tikkis stuffed with TVP, Soya nuggets Pulao, Soya chunks in tomato gravy and also in simple Onion gravy (Recipe I) or restaurant like rich creamy gravy. But my quest for yet another way to cook Nuggets, make me wander in the virtual world ofย  Food blogs, Food Websites, along with pestering my friends (Some of these are established Chefs while some, in making ofย  being a great Chef) who are really good in cooking lip smacking food. I try to jot down all the tips and tricks of cooking, from these lovely friends, and hence bring about a huge change in my cooking style, be it in terms of flavors, taste, aroma or texture.

My new neighbor is an excellent cook (Coming up next, will be her awesome Pahadi Aloo recipe) and like good neighbors we keep on sharing the food and recipes too. The following recipe of Soya Nuggets is partly inspired by her style of making gravy, partly by the tips shared by some friends, partly by my own instincts its kinda hotch potch of recipes, but trust me when I say, this will work for you at any cost.
